North Shore Library News: Oct. 13

Silver Bay Public Library:

New Story Times at the Library will be Wednesdays at noon. Story times are designed for children younger than kindergarten, but older children are welcome.

Steve Sklar and Johnna Morrow present the music of the Didgeridoo Oct. 24 at 6 p.m. in the library. The didgeridoo is an ancient Australian aboriginal instrument. Almost all are made from the stem of young eucalyptus trees, which traditionally, are hollowed out by termites. Johnna and Steve present songs and animal sounds such as dingoes, crocodiles, wolves and kookaburras.

The didgeridoo is a product of a symbiotic relationship between the earth, trees, termites, and humans. It has a broad range of uses including, artistic, spiritual, storytelling healing and fun. This program is suggested for ages 10 and older. It is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and money from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
