by on July 27th, 2016

The Iowa City Public Library will celebrate Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday next week with a special reading and performance of The Songs of Peter Rabbit.peterrabbit_peter_1280

Based on Potter’s beloved classic, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, the adaptation by composer Dudley Glass captures the trouble-making spirit of Peter Rabbit without losing the story’s cautionary lesson. Written for voice and piano, Glass’ version will be performed by ICPL children’s room staff during preschool storytime from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3, and Thursday, Aug. 4.

Both storytimes will be held in Meeting Room A. The performances also will be broadcast live on The Library Channel, Iowa City cable channel 20.

The Library’s preschool storytime is recommended for children between the ages of three and five. Younger and older siblings are welcome to attend, too.

For more information, call the Library at 319-356-5200.
