DANBURY, Conn. -- The Danbury Library is set to offer spring break programs for kids starting on Saturday, April 12.
The Danbury Library will host “Sing Along with Irv” at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 12. Children can sing along to favorites such as “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” "Where is Thumbkin” and other songs with accomplished singer/performer Irv Plastock.
The following is listing and description of other spring events, according to a press release from the Danbury Library:
- “Cool Tunes for Kids” will be held on Tuesday, April 15, from 11 a.m. to noon for kids of all ages and their families. Eric Herman and the Invisible Band will provide the entertainment with comedy, audience participation and outrageously fun songs. Herman is a children’s performer based in the Pacific Northwest. His music combines various styles of rock music with often wryly humorous child-related lyrics to create what he refers to as “cool tunes for kids.” His songs and videos have been heard and seen nationally on PBS Kids, XM radio, the "Today" show and in the Warner Bros. film “Life as We Know It.” Registration required.
- On Wednesday, April 16, from 3 to 3:45 p.m., Vermont-based PuppeTree will travel to Connecticut to present its colorful and entertaining puppet show ”Caps for Sale,” based on a favorite children’s book by Esphyr Slobodkina. Registration required.
- Drama teacher Ingrid Schaeffer will return to the library to conduct another children’s drama workshop “The Rain Puddle” on Thursday, April 17, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Children ages 5-10 are eligible to register. Participants will dress in costumes and act out the parts of the various animals that see their reflections in the rain puddle. Registration required.
- An additional program on Thursday, April 17, will be a program for the older set ages 11 to 18 with “Stuck on Duct Tape” craft class from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Artist Katie Stevenson will guide eager artists to create a wallet, necktie, flower, ring or other creation.
