Story Time Takeover

Join us for a musical morning of silly HALLOWEEN fun at Concord Conservatory of Music’s Family Notes class, led by instructor Holly Jennings.

Discover musical experiences that your whole family will love in a social setting that is celebratory of all ages, stages, and skill levels. Family Notes classes incorporate simple percussion instruments, creative movement, improvisation, and playful props. Children’s physical, language, social, cognitive, and musical development are all stimulated through musical play.

Holly Jennings is a local mom, performer, and educator. She teaches Little Notes, Family Notes, Beginner Vocals, and private voice lessons at CCM.

Pineapple Project

The Concord Free Public Library invites you to enjoy “Pineapple Project” on Saturday, October 15 at 10:30am! “Pineapple Project” is an original play about gender, creativity, and a child’s freedom to be who they are. This program is recommended for children ages 3-8. This program takes place in the Main Library Children’s Activity Room and requires no registration.

“Pineapple Project” was born when actor Mal Malme and her niece were playing, and her niece said “Boys Can’t Be Princesses!” As a gender non-conforming person and theater artist, Mal couldn’t ignore this statement. This led Mal and colleagues Becca A. Lewis and Renee Farster-Degenhardt to create a theater piece for children to broaden the gender conversation and validate each child’s identity.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library.

Goats and Giggles at the Concord Free Public Library

Bouncing baby goats are coming to the Concord Free Public Library Children’s Garden on Thursday, October 6 from 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM! Children ages 0 – 5 and their caregivers are invited for a hands-on playtime with baby goats from Chip-In Farm. There will be plenty of time for goat cuddles and photo ops. The folks from Chip-In Farm will set up a large pen to mix and mingle with their friendly Nigerian dwarf fainting goat kids. While you wait for your turn to pet the goats, enjoy some goat stories with our librarians!
