The Junior Friends of the Library have planned a not-so-scary Halloween Party for children ages 2-8. Children may wear their costumes. There will be plenty of games to play. You can collect a sticker for each game you win. Games may be played as many times as you like. Your hosts will also create their famous "Haunted Cave" for the children to crawl through. Online registration is required (http://www.dracutlibrary.org). This is an extremely popular event. If you find you can't attend after registering, please call the Children's Room to cancel so other children can enjoy the party.
Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music (University of Oklahoma Press, May 2016) celebrates in depth the vibrant soundscape of Native North America from the "heartbeat" of inter-tribal drums and "warble" of Native flutes to contemporary rock, hip-hop, and electronic music. Join author, Craig Harris for a discussion of the topic. Copies will be available for purchase and signing following the talk.
