On June 5, 3:30 p.m., Grammy award winning children’s musicians, the Okee Dokee Brothers, will be at the Rush City Public Library to help kickoff the library’s 2013 summer reading program. Their album, “Can You Canoe?,” won a Grammy for
Best Children’s Album of the Year. They put passion for the outdoors at the heart of their Americana Folk music. Joe and Justin record and perform family music with a goal to inspire children and their parents to get outside and experience nature. They believe this can motivate kids to gain a greater respect for the natural world, their communities and themselves.
Throughout the summer there will be a variety of programs and activities for kids of all ages. Stop by the Rush City Public Library and pick up a flyer listing all the activities and the program guidelines. Teens may also participate in their own summer reading programs. Ask for details at the library.
