Rock Around Altoona

We have hidden measures of music all around Altoona! Come into the library to pick up an activity log and use it to find all of the measures of our five mystery songs. If you can guess all five songs, you can enter your name into a drawing for a chance to win a ukulele, donated by Rieman’s Music!

 

Music Monday

Libraries Rock this summer! Stop in from 3-4 PM every Monday to make and play instruments, learn about music, and make some noise!  The first 5-10 minutes of each program, we will have a special guest musician who will do an instrument show-and-tell.

All ages are welcome. Registration is required. (See calendar for details)
