Save the Date: Parish Library Summer Reading Program Welcomes “Lady Chops!” July 13th Through July 15th

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
Elizabeth Vidos, also known as “Lady Chops”, is bringing her one-woman drumming show to Bienville Parish Libraries this summer! She is a talented percussionist whose past work includes performing in the hit show “STOMP.” Her program titled “Drum Roll Please” is energetic, interactive, and fun for all ages as she incorporates over 15 different instruments including buckets, body percussion, and the Cajun rubboard.

In keeping with the Summer Reading Program theme of “Oceans of Possibilities”, Lady Chops has added several unique percussion devices that mimic the sounds of the crashing waves and the special rhythms you hear on the ocean shore – from the “plop-plop” of flip-flops across the boardwalk, the “chuff-whump” of the sand cleaners on the beach and “whump-thump” of boats rocking in the water.

Wednesday afternoon, the rhythm arrives at the Gibsland Branch!

Wednesday, July 13th
Gibsland at 2:00 p.m.

Thursday morning the Lady Chops beats a path into the Arcadia Main Library and in the afternoon, she heads over to the Ringgold Branch to continue the fun!

Thursday, July 14th
Arcadia at 10:00 a.m.
Ringgold at 2:00 p.m.

On Friday, Castor welcomes Lady Chops in the morning and then the afternoon drums roll into the Saline Branch for an ocean of fun!

Friday, July 15th
Castor at 10:00 a.m.
Saline at 2:00 p.m.

DON’T FORGET TO SNAG YOUR TAGS!

Preventing the “summer slide” continues to be the main objective of summer reading programs. Collecting the 2022 “Oceans of Possibilities” brag tags is a reading incentive to give your reader extra motivation to read and collect all ten tags. It will impress teachers with how many books/pages they read during their summer vacation!

The 2022 Summer Reading Program is designed to help:

  • Children be motivated to read.
  • Children develop positive attitudes about reading, books, and the library.
  • Children maintain their reading skills during summer vacation.
  • Children have access to experiences that further their sense of discovery.
  • Children have access to experiences through which they can learn to work cooperatively.

Most of all – HAVE FUN!

See You at the Library!
