Music is an important part of life for people of all ages, and nothing gets kids more interested in music than the opportunity to sing, dance or play an instrument. The Peoria Public Library is introducing a new series that will appeal to children's love of creating and enjoying music. Kids Rock at PPL is a music-themed program designed especially for children and families.
The first session in the Kids Rock series is a presentation by Julie K from 1-2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26. The show will be held in the McKenzie Room of the library's North Branch. Families are invited to participate in this interactive, moving-and-grooving musical afternoon together. The North Branch is located at 3001 W. Grand Parkway, Peoria, Ill. Call 309-497-2100 for information about the Kids Rock program.

The Peoria Public Library's new Kids Rock series will help you instill a love of music in your children. Music appreciation should be an important part of your homeschool curriculum, and there's no better way to lay the foundation for a lifetime of enjoying music than to provide your children with opportunities to move to a beat and create their own catchy tunes.
