Hello from the East Branch Library!

We are excited to share two big programs in October. Both programs are free and everyone is welcome to participate.

Learn to Baby Sign with Baby KneadsLearn to Baby Sign with Baby Kneads, a 4-week class that teaches parents and caregivers to sign with pre-verbal children ages 5 months and up, starts on Wednesday, October 7th. Contact Meghan to register at mforsell@minlib.net.

Baby Sign class is made possible through a Federal CARES Act grant, administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Marcus Santos and Beats on Broadway Drumming ProgramWe are also thrilled to have musician Marcus Santos lead our Beats on Broadway drumming program, which is slated for three Friday sessions starting October 9th.  A contemporary percussionist and educator, Santos is a native of Bahia, Brazil. He commits his life to the study, teaching and performance of his hometown's Afro-Brazilian music and heritage. Currently, Santos is the artistic director of drumming groups in six different states in the U.S., as part of an effort to enact positive change by engaging communities through music. His passion for Afro-Brazilian music and culture comes through in each of his performances, classes and workshops. Please contact Marita to register at mcoombs@minlib.net.

Beats on Broadway is made possible by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council.
