There is a lot going on at the Big Horn County Library and, this week, we have extra programs for the kids.

At 2 p.m. on Thursday, Nicole Boyer will be here to help the kids learn how to paint. This class will be open to kids from kindergarten through sixth grade who normally come to the program on Monday and Tuesday.

The kids will be painting on canvas with acrylic paints, all of which will be supplied. This will be a very basic course of instruction and the kids will be painting a guitar onto the canvas. The class will take a bit longer than the normal program because it will be done in stages. Participants will put on the first layer of paint, then wait for that to dry. While it dries, they will learn how to apply the next. Each stage will follow this same pattern until their painting is complete.

On Friday the 13th of July, representatives from the National Parks Service will arrive at 2 p.m. for a presentation on music that will tie in with our “Libraries Rock” theme. The description of their presentation is as follows:

“Music can be found all around you. The birds you hear outside your window and the babbling brook you walk by all have their own melody. Join Rangers Crystal and Amy as they explore the sounds found in nature and show you how you can use everyday objects to make a song of your own.”

The rangers will be bringing materials for participants to make their own musical instruments. This will be open to all those participating in the summer reading program – primary through sixth grade.

Be sure to bring your kids down to the Big Horn County Library and let them experience the fun of art, as well as the music that is all around us.
