07 Jun FOL Board Approves Funding for Two Popular Programs
The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Library has approved funding to bring back the Hamilton East Public Library’s incredibly popular monthly music program with Mr. Daniel. Mr. Daniel has been playing music for preschool age kids since 2010. He started out at Sprouts Academy Preschool in Chicago. When he moved back to Indianapolis in late 2013 he began a wide range of public and private performances, classes, and jam session sing-a-longs! Mr. Daniel shares his love of music with children using singing, dancing, games, movements, and instruments. They sing and play traditional children’s classics as well as other popular music while being exposed to concepts like beat, rhythm, pitch, melody, and tempo. Through music Mr. Daniel helps the children explore a wide range of topics like feelings, nature, numbers, friendship, humor, and all the other good stuff we want to teach our little ones. And they do this while genuinely rocking-out to some catchy tunes!
The Board also approved funding to sponsor a visit from Mark Moran, author or co-author of more than 25 books on antiques and collectibles and a guest expert on the PBS series Antiques Roadshow. Mark will visit HEPL – Noblesville and appraise up to 40 items from our patrons. Mark’s vast knowledge of fine art, antiques and collectibles comes from decades of hard work, intense study and hands-on experience. His travels have taken him from metropolitan hot-spots to tiny villages in Europe. Each patron will be allowed to bring in one item and he will appraise its value. The program will be run in a similar fashion to Antiques Roadshow on PBS and will last up to three hours.
More information on these programs will be coming soon!
