    Mad About Music

    Invite Children's Librarian Ellen Jepson to your classroom or bring your students to the Appleton Public Library for a musical storytelling program.

    Important Details:

    This 30 minute program may include:

    • Rhythmic books
    • Books for singing along
    • Instruments such as the Autoharp and Piano (piano when presented at the Library)
    • Musical fingerplays
    • Lots of singing!

    Getting library cards and/or checking out books are not a requirement to visit the library for a field trip.

    Library cards may be obtained for your students if desired. This requires that completed library card applications be returned to the library at least 10 days before the visit, accompanied by a class list showing the students’ home addresses. Library card applications can be found on our FAQ page. If you choose to check out books, please add 30 minutes to the amount of time you plan to stay at the library.

    All library programs are free and school-age programs are taught by a professional librarian. Classrooms consisting of more than one grade may attend the program of their choice and the program will be appropriately modified. Please ask us if you would like help combining this fieldtrip with a stop at another Appleton downtown destination.
