Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

The Oglethorpe County Middle School and High School bands are coming to the library to let kids interact with musical instruments!

Children of all ages will get to try out lots of different kinds of instruments to see what they might like to play. There will even be some instruments you can check out with a library card!

This program is absolutely free and open to all ages.

This program is supported in part by the Georgia Council for the Arts through the appropriations from the Georgia General Assembly. GCA is a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
