Events at the Pleasant Hill Library

Learn about Bike Safety at the Library
Area families are invited to the Pleasant Hill Library on Thursday, May 1 at 4 p.m. for a special presentation about staying safe while riding a bike this summer. Experts from AAA will discuss bike rules and safety precautions for the entire family. Please do not bring your bike to the presentation. There is no charge for the program, and no registration is required.

Preschool Program Highlighting Monkeys at the Library
Children age 3 to 5 years old are invited to the Pleasant Hill Library on Friday, May 2 at 11 a.m. for a preschool program featuring monkeys. Children will enjoy stories, crafts and activities—all to do with monkeys! This is a Book Adventure Program, presented in partnership with Hastings ISD 200. There is no charge for the event, but registration is required. To register, call the library at 651-438-0200[X] or visit the library website at www.dakotacounty.us/library<http://www.dakotacounty.us/library>.

Music and Tea at the Library
As part of Dakota County Libraries' Silver Tea Series, the Pleasant Hill Library will host popular local folksingers Curtis and Loretta on Thursday May 15. The performance will begin at 1 p.m. Curtis & Loretta's music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo's extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and carefully chosen traditional pieces from the British Isles, America, and beyond.
The current menagerie includes Celtic harp, mandocello, mandolin, guitars, clawhammer banjo, and National steel ukulele, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis' down-home sense of humor and Loretta's theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of
side-trips in between.

After the performance, the library we provide a tea reception in the rotunda of the library. There is no charge for the performance and no reservations are needed.

Learn to Draw Horses at the Library
Children age 6 to 12 years old are invited to the Pleasant Hill Library on Tuesday, May 6 at 3:30 p.m. for a class on learning to draw horses.
