Skip the craziness of Black Friday shopping. Make it a playful “Bright Light Friday” instead. Sing, dance, and celebrate the start of the Christmas season with KC-based kid rocker and Library favorite Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove.

On the day of the show, Jim will collect winter clothing items on behalf of the nonprofit Artists Helping the Homeless (artistshelpingthehomeless​.org). Items of need range from socks and long underwear to gloves, scarves, and hats. All sizes accepted (adult large and XL items needed most). Appropriate for all ages.
