Tthe Celtic, Folk and World music duo Four Shillings Short live as full time minstrels in their Dodge Caravan, loaded with an ever increasing array of musical instruments including hammered dulcimer, mandolins, Renaissance woodwinds, North Indian Sitar, recorders, tinwhistles, bouzeki, banjo, and even a bowed psaltry.
Like a medieval fair in New Delhi, the music of Four Shillings Short is intriguing and worth investigating-their music is a global potpourri.
Join us for our annual kids’ Halloween Story Time! Spooky stories, creepy crafts, scary songs, tasty treats. This fun event is open to children of all ages and abilities. Don’t forget your costumes!!

Strider the Reading Dog!
Pets Helping People
Open to children of all abilities. Strider the Golden Retriever is a certified Therapy Dog… and he loves stories!
Studies have shown that dogs are ideal reading companions: they do not laugh, judge, or criticize; they listen attentively; and they help lower blood pressure. So, stop by and share your favorite book with a warm, furry dog!
