We don’t want to say it’s so, but it’s true. The summer reading program is coming to an end. We have had so much fun. We have a final week of fun activities planned and we want to see all of our summer friends at the library one more time to Paws for Reading. 

July 29, 1 p.m. at the Reunion Hall: The Zinghoppers. Utilizing state of the art sound and projection, the Zinghoppers band invites your kids on a musical concert journey to the zoo where they’ll experience lots of animals up close and personal. Along the way, there will also be a celebration of books and reading. Fun, fresh and fully interactive - this show encourages audience participation and patrons will be dancing, singing and zinghopping along.

This show will feature state of the art video projections on screen of the entire PBS TV show cast: Funky Possum, Olo Da Donkey, Coconuts The Kangaroo, J-Star and DJ Kitty - along with the Zinghoppy Dancers.
