Small Saul

Friday, June 3rd at 16.00

Small Saul is not your average pirate. He’s only waist high, he gives out cookies and potted plants, he sports a bunny tattoo and he makes a delightful pineapple upside-down cake. Being rough and tough just isn’t in his nature. Will Small Saul be able to prove his worth as a pirate? Or will his shipmates throw him overboard?!

Come and find out and join in with our fun after­wards! Please call ahead and reserve a place!

Singalong Concert

Friday, June 3rd at 19.30

If you enjoyed the last five concerts at the American Library, this will be just the right thing for you: "Baton Rouge", which are Andy Riedinger, Tom Fischer and JS Schmidt, who have been making music together for 40 years, will play a whole bunch of country & folk songs by John Denver, Ralph McTell, Garth Brooks, Ian Tyson, Everly Brothers... and many more.

Feel free to sing along (don’t worry, we’ll provide the texts) and tap along and join us for a glass of Kentucky Bourbon or non-alcoholic beverages during inter­mis­sion.

A Boy and a Jaguar

Friday, June 17th at 16

Alan loves animals, but the jaguar at the Bronx Zoo makes him sad. Why is she so alone in her bare cage? More than anything, he wants to be her voice, but he stutters uncon­trol­la­bly.

Find out about the life story of wildlife conser­va­tio­nist Alan Rabinowitz who used to stutter as a child. After the story we’ll find out about jaguars and make a cool wildlife craft. Please call ahead and reserve a place.
