Library program offers 'Sleepytime Stories' for children and adults


October 31, 1994|By LYN BACKE

For many of us, being read to sleep when we were small enough for pajamas with feet and old enough to let our imaginations run with an image is a special memory.

The Eastport-Annapolis Neck Library is helping to create comparable memories with "Sleepytime Stories" at 7 p.m. on Nov. 7 and Dec. 5.

Children ages 2 to 6 will be treated to traditional bedtime stories. Adults are encouraged to come, too.

Pajamas, stuffed animals and favorite blankets are welcome.


Visitors to any county library program are encouraged to bring a canned or packaged food item for the Food Bank network. Collection boxes are available at each branch.

Along the same lines, the Treaty of Paris restaurant in the Maryland Inn is collecting food for The Light House, a local shelter for the homeless.

Food and Beverage Manager Joe Holtzman said the restaurant will offer a complimentary dessert to any diner who brings a can of food between now and Thanksgiving.

In an expansion of the established program for the restaurant, its vendors are participating in the drive, with donations of turkeys, hams and canned goods.


Lynn Roberts, a featured vocalist with the Harry James, Benny Goodman, Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey and Charlie Spivak orchestras, will perform two sets Saturday at the third annual West River Jazz Festival in Owensville.

She'll be accompanied in the afternoon by the West River Jazz Fest All Stars and in the evening by Reunion.

Reunion is an orchestra made up of former members of the Airmen of Note and the Commodores, two military service bands. It will open the festivities at 11 a.m. Included during the day will be performances by the Buck Creek Jazz Band, a traditional jazz group, and the aforementioned West River Jazz Fest All Stars, who take their sound from the small band-within-a-band groups of the 1930s and '40s.

Honored during the day will be jazz pianist Dick Moran and area radio personalities Frank Harden of WMAL-AM and his longtime partner, the late Jackson Weaver.

Tickets for the 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. session and the 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. session are limited, due to restricted seating.

Call Tom Coleman at (410) 867-0888, or George Stringer at (301) 261-5613.


Capt. Dick Marshall was a third-generation boat builder and a master carver whose work is displayed throughout the world.
