Live Music with Children’s Entertainer, Mr. Richard at Eastpoint Library

July 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Live Music with Children's Entertainer, Mr. Richard at Eastpoint Library

The Franklin County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is thrilled to continue its series of fun events with the eagerly awaited children’s entertainer, Mr. Richard. This special program will be held on Monday, July 8, at two convenient times and locations: 11:00 am at the Eastpoint Branch Library and 2:00 pm at the Carrabelle Branch Library. The Eastpoint Branch is located at 160 Hickory Dip Rd, and the Carrabelle Branch at 311 St. James Avenue (Hwy 98). Library programs are free and open to the public and participants do not need a library card to participate. All ages are welcome.

Mr. Richard will bring his original, wacky songs to life with a special performance just for kids. Mr. Richard, playing guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and harmonica, will entertain with lively, kid-centric tunes about topics like the five-second rule, the garbage man and his truck, and enduring long adult conversations. These lively songs ensure lots of audience participation, with plenty of opportunities to sing, clap, and dance along from the very first tune. The program promises to liven up the day for all who attend.

Richard Peeples plays whimsical, silly tunes for children and their families. He worked at Walt Disney World in Orlando, and also spent two summers as a ranger for the National Park Service in Colorado. For five years, Richard was a storyteller for the Orange County Florida Library. He brings all this experience to his library programs.

During the Summer Reading Program, both library branches have fun activities for both kids and adults. The theme is “Adventure Begins At Your Library” and will feature the outdoors. There are reading logs, prizes and incentives for all ages (including adults).

The Summer Reading Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Franklin County Public Libraries. Friends of Franklin County Public Libraries is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports the Franklin County Public Libraries in Eastpoint and Carrabelle, Florida.
