The grand kick-off for the Summer Children's Activities was Tuesday; June 5 with over a hundred children, plus caregivers, older siblings and helpers enjoying the introduction of the 2018 musical theme, "Libraries Rock." The inaugural program for the season was two hours (two programs) rather than the one-hour allowed for most of the programs. First Dr. Magical Balloons (Dewayne Reyn- olds of Auburn, Ala.) cre- ated musical instruments from balloons and enlisted audience members to join his musical performances for the group. The children weren't too quick to recog- nize older rock songs, even Elvis, but named vocalists nearer their generation, like Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, almost before the notes hit the air. Following the high energy program of Dr. Magical Balloons, chil- dren could visit tables with various types of instru- ments and try their hands (and mouths and ears) at them. Ms. Ann demonstrated the range of music one can make with a keyboard. And R.J. Reynolds, Randy Buffmgton and Dana Har- ris, who play together in a band in Macon, demon- strated the magic they can make with various stringed instruments, from guitar to banjo. There were glasses to tap for tones and instru- ments to shake, rattle, beat and blow. There were even kazoos to take home. On Thursday, June 7 the Monroe County Club- house behind the Library, where most of the sum- mer programs take place, was filled with children again as Monroe County Farm Bureau presented a program about milk, complete with complimen- tary servings of ice cream. Children were invited to wear their favorite cos- tumes to the program, and little princesses, cowboys, mermaids, superheroes, pro athletes, cheerleaders and fairies were there to learn about milk and enjoy ice cream. Melissa Mathis read a story about LoueUa, a cow who needed a kiss to give milk, and told the young audience some in- teresting facts about milk, like that a dairy cow gives six gallons of milk per day The Monroe County Farm Bureau served 120 cups of ice cream at the event. Children's Librarian Tracy Brinkrnan urged the children to get their own library cards ffthey did not already have them. She also encouraged them to sign up for the Summer Reading Program, which includes a goody bag with registration, and to read this summer. She said that last summer Monroe County children logged 7,000 hours of reading, a 50 percent increase over the previous year. "You blew my socks off;,' she said. "That's why I'm always barefoot. Brinkman said the goal for this summer is 10,000 hours of reading. She i! : .

(Photos/Diane Glidewell) said she will change her hair color from blonde to rainbow if they reach the goal and will even go for for a long mohawk if they exceed the goal. "I'll say the kids made me do it," said Brinkman. "You have enough on your team to make medo it." There will be special programs for children each Tuesda Wednesday and Thursday at 11 a.m including Lego Learning, Hot Dog Da) karate and magic. There will also be times to learn Spanish in the afternoon and evening. Special programs for teens are planned each Tuesday, induding a visit from Game Time Gaming Truck on June 19 at I p.m. And there are even adult/ family activities planned, such as movies, karaoke, trivia, bingo and Zumba.
