Subject: Book for Fall and Winter programs
2009 National Artist of the Year, Greta Pedersen, is currently booking for Fall and Winter library programs. She also has a new literacy program and a bi-lingual program.
All library programs are geared to the age of the audience at hand, with sing along songs, hand motions or sign language, and a variety of percussion instruments which older members of the audience are invited to play.

NEW Literacy Program: Get Reading to Read.... with Music!
This engaging program for preschoolers and kindergarteners promotes literacy and language skills such as phonemic awareness, rhyming, and word meaning through songs, movement, and sign language. Quick and easy tips for parents and caregivers are also included.
La Musica Es Magica/Music Is Magic (bilingual)
This spirited, bilingual sing-along program celebrates the magic of music with songs in Spanish, English, and sign language; commentary is in Spanish and English.
Gathering the Harvest - A great family program, celebrating the harvest season with songs, sign language, and a basketful of harvest-themed percussion instruments, including corn, gourds and bananas!
Celebrate Halloween - Humorous and not-too-spooky songs and chants for your monsters, gypsies and and other creatures, plus sign language and harvest percussion instruments (including pretend-skulls, corn, gourds and bananas).
Songs for the Winter - A non-holiday oriented program, great for December, January or February.
December Holidays - Celebrating the traditions of Hannukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa.
