Rogers, John BUILD YOUR OWN BLUEBIRD BOX Nature- Animals,
Nature- Other,
Other
Build your own bluebird nest box! Kids and adults love to make their own bluebird box. Other birds that use this box include tree swallows, chickadees, titmice, and wrens. It is a hands-on learning experience. Using pre-cut lumber with ALL materials and tools provided, everyone makes and takes home a bluebird nest box. (Or,alternatively, a chickadee box with a smaller entrance hole for those who do not have good bluebird habitat.) The nest box building program includes a PowerPoint presentation on bluebirds and other birds with John Rogers. This dynamic and colorful PowerPoint presentation will educate the audience on bluebirds, other birds, and how to properly place their box, etc. The slide program will add about 45 minutes, making the total time up to 90 minutes. Customized as needed. (Please refer to the other listing for a description of the full length, stand alone PowerPoint presentation.) Children, adults, and families love this hands-on activity, and it provides an opportunity to help bluebirds, and other birds, too. Materials include pre-cut wood, nails, and inside plastic strip. Tools include hammers and safety glasses. Mr. Rogers cuts and drills the wood himself in his garage.

Stoll, Brian At the Barricades ~ Theatre Fans and the Stage Door Experience History,
Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
I will talk about the role theatre fans like myself have played in the theatre community over the centuries. I will share why die-hard theatre fans become repeat attenders and may see a production more than 900 times! In addition, I will inform patrons about the stage door experience which I briefly touched upon at the end of my last program, but was not able to go into detail. I consider stage-dooring to be the icing on the cake after attending a Broadway production. Stage-dooring is when theatre fans rush to the theater's stage door after a performance in hopes of meeting cast members and complimenting them on their performances. Many fans also try to obtain selfies with the stars and have their playbills autographed as keepsakes. In addition to sharing my own knowledge and experiences at many stage doors on Broadway I will include views and experiences from both sides of the barricade.
$201- $350
Richter, Chip Imagination, Creativity and Inspriation Music,
Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter’s Family Concert at The Library has become a favorite among librarians and families because it's “more fun than a Kid (or Parent) should be allowed to have!” It’s the kind of high-energy fun and audience participation naturally found in a live performance all in the wonderful learning environment of the public library. This is live music, no accompaniment tracks, so anything can happen! With his guitar, banjo, harmonica, stories and original tunes Chip connects with the kids and adults, creating moments to remember. Also don't forget to check out the Librarians Resource Page where you can download some of Chip's music absolutely free of charge. Librarians are using these mp3s and the Teacher's Tips to compliment story-times with children.
