Join in the celebration with an interactive music concert from Backyard Band Jams and icecream cups.  End of party we'll hand out raffle and participation prizes for those who took part in our summer reading challenge.

 

"At a Backyard Band Jam families engage in musical play with traditional children's songs, sing-along storybooks, props, and instruments (see more about that below). Remaining physically distanced, we sing together, move and groove together, and of course jam out together!

Please bring along a blanket or lawn chairs to sit on, as well as something to shake - anything from a box of mac & cheese to actual egg shakers, scarf kind of thing - face cloth, dish cloth, etc... And a collection of instruments, anything that’s a “real” instrument or ones made from the recycling bin or kitchen cabinets. All that is really required is a willingness to play musically!

Backyard Band Jams are led by, Rhonda Matson, an early childhood music specialist for over 18 years, and Owner and Director of South Coast Music Together, music education classes for families."

Backyard Band Jams has been paid for by funds from the Friends of the Mattapoisett Library.  Thank you.

    Contact: Michelle Skaar   5087584171   mskaar@sailsinc.org
   

For August, we will be reading and cooking from Quick & Simple by Jacques Pepin. You don't need a kitchen brigade, decades-honed skills, or expensive ingredients to cook and eat like master chef Jacques Pépin. Just like the rest of us, he doesn't always have as much time or energy as he'd like to put together a satisfying meal. So, he came up with Jacques Pépin Quick & Simple, 250 recipes for surprisingly achievable, impressive fare. Covering homemade staples and every course, with tips for kitchen tools and equipment, pantry staples, and techniques to simplify and improve every dish you make, this foundational, classic collection is essential for every busy home cook who refuses to eat poorly.

Join us as we discuss this cookbook. Copies are available at the library.

        There are many spaces available.
