Dig Into Reading! with storysinger Brad Clark
Newport Public Library's Dig Into Reading! summer reading program stars storysinger Brad Clark at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, June 26. All children and families are invited to attend one of these free programs. Weather permitting, the show will be held in Literacy Park. If it's still raining at 12:30 p.m. we will move the show inside the library to the McEntee Room.
Clark says, “I discovered the world of performing stories and music for kids in 2008 when I was lucky enough to join the Children’s Room staff at the Wilsonville Public Library. I just couldn’t get enough of it! I love reading books, telling stories, singing songs and dancing with my own kids as well as any others I meet”.
This is the first time he has performed at Newport Public Library but he has a sterling reputation amongst Oregon librarians for being a gifted musician and storyteller. What people like most about him is how effortlessly he gets his audience involved in the show.
Clark’s show is funded by Ready to Read grants from the Oregon State Library and the Lincoln County Library District. His lodging is provided by Newport’s Sylvia Beach Hotel.
