This summer, we were joined by the incomparable Noah Reimer, aka Duke Otherwise, who entertained an appreciative crowd at the Annex. Live music is the best, but we’ve got a spectacular collection of CDs full of great music for kids and families to enjoy together. Because we care about music, we’ve picked the best of the best for your ears including discs by They Might Be Giants, Frances England, Kimya Dawson, Medeski Martin and Wood, Dan Zanes, and Elizabeth Mitchell. We also have more traditional kids’ music, too. Anthologies from Sesame Street, Shel Silverstein, Disney, and Smithsonian Folkways round out our collection.
But because we love live music so much, we’re happy to announce a special end-of-summer live performance by Chicago-based entertainer Mary Macaroni! Ms. Macaroni performs original silly songs and magic tricks and has played to diverse crowds at festivals, amusement parks, Chicago Bulls games, Carnival Cruise Lines, and recently completed a tour playing for American troops all around the world! Ms. Macaroni will be playing at the Library on August 25! This FREE show will be best for kids on laps all the way up to 8 years old, but of course everyone is welcome to attend. August 25 at 11am at the Library!
