Does your preschooler like music? How about movement? (What preschooler doesn’t like to run, dance, and play?)

That’s why we have Preschool Music and Movement at Eckhart Public Library on Saturday, February 18.

Preschoolers and their families and caregivers are invited to come to the library from 10:15-10:45 a.m. to warm up their muscles, get some wiggles out, and explore different rhythms. There is no registration required to join this free class.

For more information, call the Children’s Department at 925-2414 ext. 320 or email childrens@epl.lib.in.us.
