Kasson Public Library will soon host an exciting event sponsored by their Summer Reading Program.   On Friday, June 22 at 10:30am  the Minnesota ZooMobile will give a fabulous program to be held at the Kasson-Mantorville High School Auditorium. Live zoo animals from the tropical rain forest will be present.  This promises to be a dynamic and fun experience for all ages, intending to inspire a respect and sense of awe for all life on earth.  This program is free and open to the public, and is made possible by the people of Minnesota through the Arts and Cultural Heritage/Library Legacy fund.

The public is invited  on Friday June 29 at 6:30am to an evening of African drumming .   The drum is perhaps the oldest instrument in the world, and leading this hands-on event will be Mr. Sosthenes Kwesi Nunyapke, or “Uncle Kwesi,” a native of Ghana.  He will bring as many as 30 drums, and each family will have a hands-on lesson in traditional African drumming.   Because of limited space, you must register ahead by calling 634-7615.  This program is free and open to the public, and is made possible by the people of Minnesota through the Arts and Cultural Heritage/Library Legacy fund in cooperation with SELCO, the regional library system.
