Red Hook Library Creates “All Abilities Program Series”

Red Hook All Abilities Program

Red Hook Public Library has created an All Abilities Program Series for families with special needs to gather and enjoy.

The program includes a music and movement activity where participants enjoy singing, rhythm, rhyme, chants, and moving their bodies in a variety of ways. Be sure to visit our website to see all the programs we offer.

On January 29th, 2018 artist Maggie Rothwell led the group in a sing-a-long with animal-themed classics. The group especially enjoyed “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” by the Tokens and the “weema-weh’s” could be heard throughout the library!
