|2014 SRP availabilty||
Hi I trust you are looking forward to summer. It has seemed that winter was especially long this year. By this time you are probably well advanced in your planning for the Summer Reading Program. This year the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System has asked me to appear at all of their branches as part of a Family Literacy Services Grant. I feel honored to have been chosen for this series, and I'm very grateful. But, I will miss traveling to many other libraries that I've had the pleasure of visiting in past years. I've enjoyed being in many of your libraries and working with you and I'm planning to be available again in 2015. I will stay in touch and hope to be considered for a program then. I am available for concerts and workshops throughout the rest of the year, including this fall. Please feel free to contact me for further information or to schedule a presentation. In the meantime, I wish you all the best during your 2014 SRP. With warm regards, -Nan
|Sing A Story - Read A Song!||
With programs specially designed for libraries, Nan incorporates songs that have been made into books (books that sing), songs made from books, songs based on folk tales and stories, and songs that celebrate reading. Within that framework she offers presentations that focus on several different themes such as reading (SING A STORY-READ A SONG!), folk music (MORE THAN A SONG!), history (SINGING OUR HISTORY), and nature and the environment (SONGS FOR A LIVABLE LAND). Using folk and acoustic music and a variety of songs and instruments, Nan offers presentations that are fun and informative, and encourages audience participation.
