Teens will enjoy music from across the decades and try their hand at a different style of art each week. Rock out, with art! If you enjoy rock music and making art, you will definitely want to stop by!

Summer Reading Club 2018: Movement & Dance Storytime Fridays @ Marion Public Library
Jul 27 @ 10:00 am

Each Friday during Summer Reading Club, we’ll be celebrating the different ways Libraries Rock with a special movement and dance storytime for all ages. Get ready for your little ones to move to the beat and have a blast, without realizing they’re also supporting literacy! Learn tips and tricks to continue the fun at home every day!

Did you know that the movements and motions kids practice when they dance will also help with reading and writing later? When kids are jumping and dancing, their brains are practicing the coordination needed later to turn pages, write, and read.
