"On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” Summer Library Program


First through fifth graders enjoyed the Bi-Okoto Dance Company from Cincinnati, OH this past Tuesday, as part of the “On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!” Summer Library Program. The children (and adults) learned about the music, language and culture of West Africa, specifically Nigeria. The dance company was formed in 1994 in Cincinnati and has traveled all over the United States performing and teaching classes to adults and children. “This was a very educational program and the performers were so energetic and fun!” said librarian Beth Edwards. “We would love to have them back for another program.”
This program was generously sponsored by Taylor Machine Works.
