All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 for a staff development event.
On Saturday, January 10, at 2 p.m. the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St., plays host to Yurtfolk as it presents its debut CD, Anyone Can Sing, a family-friendly folk mix of get up and dance songs, lullabies, and Spanish-language songs.
The group, consisting of LuAnne Harley and Brian Kruschwitz, makes its home in Indiana where the duo lives in a yurt (a dwelling that originally was designed to be somewhat portable for the nomadic herders in the high, windy plains of Mongolia). Anyone Can Sing is a self-produced effort that was recorded in a neighbor’s bedroom. Among the songs on the CD is the title track, inspired by themes presented in Horace and Morris Join the Chorus (But What About Dolores)? by James Howe, “Go to Sleep My Darlin’,” a lullaby that examines how animals go to sleep, and then closes with wishes to dream of a world of peace.
