Summer Reading Schedule of Events
Wednesday June 30th at 3:30-4:30pm: Making Music with RiverJack Z Have some fun “Making Music with RiverJack Z” this summer! Mooers Free Library and the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System are pleased to offer this free songwriting workshop for children and families. RiverJack Z (a.k.a. Jack Zucchini, the guitar-playing singer/songwriter from The Zucchini Brothers) will guide participants through the craft of songwriting by composing and recording a song that is uniquely their own. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate in this event that is fun for the whole family. Mooers Free Library will receive a high-quality audio file with the song to share. Participants will also be provided with a make-and-take musical art activity. The workshop will be held in an outdoor space as an added precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This project is made possible with the funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts.
