Legacy Continues at Rockford LIbrary

A new season of programming provided by Legacy funds will begin at Rockford Public Library with Rachael Kroog, musician and entertainer extraordinaire on Wednesday, July 28, at 10:30 a.m.  Rachael has received rave reviews for her style and ability to entertain through music, stories, and interaction with the audience. She has promised to bring some “mystery guests” with her as well, and welcomes all ages.  No preregistration required.

Wednesday, Aug. 4, at 10:30 a.m., Patrick Mader, (author of "Opa & Oma Together," "Oma Finds a Miracle" and "Big Brother Has Wheels") will be at the Rockford library to share stories and insights on families, farming, and writing.  Patrick is an elementary school teacher who brings along enlarged illustrations, photographs, and other props that help keep even the youngest audience members engaged.  No preregistration required.

These programs, and many others that will be offered in the 32 branches of the Great River Regional Library through June 2011, are funded through a grant from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund created by the Legacy Amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution.  Watch local media, library bulletin boards, and the GRRL website to be aware of all of  the great offerings close to you.
