What a fantastic idea - I bet you had a library full of honking and roaring dragons by the end of that! Would you mind if I shared this idea on my blog for other dragon lovers to use? http://www.dragonsandthings.co.uk/

Harmonica for Kids   2 years 24 weeks ago

Is your grandchild signed up?  Parents, grandparents, and other caregivers can accompany participants. We might not have enough harmonicas for caregivers though.  However, if there is interest, we can offer a class just for adults.  When time do you think would be best for adults?

Now that is a class I am interested in also! Can a grandparent accompany her grandchild?

What do librarians do when the library is closed?   2 years 45 weeks ago

Of course none of the original sounds of Motown are in the public domain, but Solange Knowles put out a single in the past few years that has a very familiar ring to it, if the Big Chill soundtrack is your kind of thing.Then it's reasonable to believe that you could find something on Jamendo with a CC BY-SA license suitable for reuse in this video, provided that the video too was licensed that way. (Then it could be added to our free collections also.) It's certainly a better option than waiting 100+ years for Motown to enter the public domain.KFL
