7/23: Tj Wheeler Concert & Instrument Workshop - 2pm & 3pm

We've got a great family concert planned this summer! Grab the beach chairs and blankets and take a seat outside to enjoy the talented and entertaining American Roots musician, Tj Wheeler. The Friends of the Library will be selling snacks and refreshments, as well as holding a book sale. It will be a great way to spend a summer afternoon, for all ages! The concert begins at 3pm., preceded by a jugband instrument workshop for kids at 2pm.

Tj Wheeler performs his gumbo of Blues, Jazz, Ragtime and more on a wide variety of instruments, including the 7 string guitar, Ukulele, Tenor Banjo, 1 string Diddley Bow, Tap percussion, nitty gritty vocals & Kazoo! Audiences of all ages around the world have been enlightened by Tj’s knowledge of the history & stories behind the music as well as his talented and passionate performances. During a workshop prior to the concert, Tj will bring a variety of jug band and percussion instruments so kids will be able to play on traditional instruments such as the washboard, washtub bass, cigar box guitar, and a wide range of shakers and tambourines. Afterward, kids are invited to be featured on a couple of songs during the concert!

*Funding for the Kids, Books and the Arts event is provided by the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, CHILIS, Cogswell Benevolent Trust, and is supported in part by a grant from the NH State Council on the Arts & the National Endowment for the Arts as well as funds administered by the NH State Library and provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The Five Laws of Library Science

Dr. S. R. Ranganathan, considered the father of modern library science, published his 5 laws in 1931: Books are for use; Every reader his or her book; Every book its reader; Save the time of the reader; The library is a growing organism.
