Cancelled Kamishibai Read Aloud for Ages 5-9

Come join us for a special kind of Story Time - Kamishibai!! It is pronounced Ka-me-she-by and means “Paper Theater.”

Popular in Japan in the early 1900’s as a means of entertainment and commerce, Kamishibai employs  the use of a small theater, large illustrated cards, and theatrical voice.

The teller of the stories would arrive on bicycle and clap his wooden clappers to alert the children in the village to come for a story! The teller would then sell sweet treats to his audience as a way of earning his living. 

Cancelled Drop In Instrument Petting Zoo

Let's Play Music & Make Art of Manchester & Derry is bringing their Instrument Petting Zoo to the Bedford Public Library on Thursday, April 30 at 10:00 AM!

This is a great opportunity for little ones to get up close and hands-on with a variety of instruments including violins, hand drums, ukulele, guitars and more.

These hands-on learning experiences are a great way to foster music appreciation and literacy in your child and set the stage for more in-depth learning to come!
