GREENVILLE — “Family Fun Day” at the Greenville Public Library continues on Wednesday, July 19, at 11 a.m. with special guest Jim Gill.

“Jim has a unique approach to his concerts for young children and families. This is because his graduate studies in child development have convinced him that family play is more important to young children than music alone… whether the music is classical, folk, or rock and roll,” said organizers. “Each of Jim’s concerts is an active sing-along and clap-along. He bangs out energetic rhythms on his banjo while everyone claps, jumps, dances and even sneezes along. The concert is filled with songs and stories from Jim’s award-winning recordings and books for young children.”

Meet on the lawn under the shade trees and bring a blanket or lawn chair. In case of inclement weather the First Congregational Christian Church on Fifth Street generously offers us their Activity Building. “Family Fun Day” is sponsored by grants from the Friends of the Library and the Greyson James Steyer Memorial Fund.
