March into spring with kids’ activities

March brings springtime, and five chances to take part in Norman Public Library West’s weekly Story Time activities.

Story Time, scheduled at 10 a.m. on each Tuesday morning during the month, brings budding bookworms and their caregivers together for stories, music, games and more geared for children of preschool age.

The library also presents Music Time with Jennifer Voss, at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 5. The program offers a chance for ages 4 and under to experience a musical adventure through stories and songs.

Later in the month is Music and Movement Story Time, at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 28. It’s geared to ages 5 and under and is a mix of music, dance and stories.

No advance registration is required for any of these programs.

“Lunch and Listen” to feature violinists

Norman Public Library West continues its monthly concert series “Lunch and Listen” with the next performance at noon Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the library.

University of Oklahoma violin students of Dr. Gregory Lee and Dr. Min Jeong-Koh will be the featured performers. The program also will give attendees insight into the violin itself, with a history lesson about the instrument and the types of music it can play. There will be an instrument “petting zoo” at the conclusion of the concert.

All ages may attend and are invited to bring their lunch or purchase lunch from Paisley Café inside the library.

No advance registration is required to attend.
