The Danbury Library is offering up some programming for kids and teens during school vacation next week. 


Leading the way is “Sing Along with Irv” on Saturday, April 12 from 11:00am to noon for children ages 3-7.  Accomplished singer/performer Irv Plastock will lead the event.


“Cool Tunes for Kids” will be held on Tuesday, April 15 from 11:00 am to noon for kids of all ages and their families.  Eric Herman and the Invisible Band will provide the entertainment with comedy, audience participation and outrageously fun songs.  Eric Herman is a children’s performer based in the Pacific Northwest.  His music combines various styles of rock music with often wryly humorous child-related lyrics to create what he refers to as “cool tunes for kids.” 


On Wednesday, April 16 from 3:00-3:45pm, Vermont based PuppeTree will travel to Connecticut to present their colorful and entertaining puppet show ”Caps for Sale,” based on a favorite children’s book by Esphyr Slobodkina. 


Drama teacher Ingrid Schaeffer will return to the library to conduct another children’s drama workshop “The Rain Puddle” on Thurs., April 17 from 11:00am to 12:30pm.  Children ages 5-10 are eligible to register.  Participants will dress in costumes and act out the parts of the various animals that see their reflections in the rain puddle. 


An additional program on Thursday, April 17th will be a program for the older set ages 11 to 18 with “Stuck on Duct Tape” craft class from 4:30-6:00pm.  Artist Katie Stevenson will guide eager artists to create a wallet, necktie, flower, ring or other creation.  All materials are supplied.


All programs are provided free of charge.  Registration is required online at danburylibrary.org, click on “Events” or call 203-797-4528.
