“Tunes for Tots” Featured at Rock Island Library’s Hug-A-Book Event PDF Print E-mail

Rock Island, IL: As part of its goal to support children’s early learning needs, this year’s Rock Island Public Library Hug-A-Book event will feature “tunes for tots” by a Rock Island musician.  

Musician Chris Dunn, of Rock Island, will provide music for children ages two to five from 6:30 to 7:30 pm on Thursday, August 22 at the Rock Island Main Library, 401 19th Street. Each child attending the event will also receive a free children’s book and Hug-A-Book bag to keep, courtesy of the Merrill Harris Hug-A-Book Memorial Fund of the Rock Island Public Library Foundation.

Each Hug-A-Book event includes an educational program designed to support the early learning needs of two-to-five-year-olds. According to Susan Foster, Rock Island Library Children’s Service director, music was chosen because of its role in helping children activate language skills. “Music helps very young children practice language, recognize sounds and develop reasoning ability, which are all skills that help children become more ready to read and to learn.”

Hug-A-Book is free and open to the public. For more news about library events and hours, visit the library website at www.rockislandlibrary.org, sign up for an email newsletter, follow the library on Facebook or Twitter, or call 309-732-7323 (READ.)

Arrival Time of Columbus Ships Pinta and Nina in Davenport Thursday, August 1, 2013 at 12:00 Noon

Davenport, Iowa - On Thursday, August 1st at 12:00 Noon, the "Pinta" and the "Nina", replicas of Columbus' ships, will arrive in Davenport.  The ships will be docked at Oneida Landing, at the foot of Bridge Street, next to the Boathouse Restaurant, until their departure early Monday morning, August 12th.

The ships open to the general public on Friday, August 2nd.

The "Nina" was built by hand and without the use of power tools and is considered to be the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.  The "Pinta" was built in Brazil and is a larger version of the archetypal caravel.  Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the Fifteenth Century.

While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard self-guided tour.  The prices are $8.00 for adults, $7.00 for senior citizens and $6.00 for students 5-14.  Children 4 and under are free.  The ships are open every day from 9:00am until 6:00pm. No reservations are necessary.

Teachers or groups wishing to schedule a 30 minute guided tour with a crew member should call the ship directly at 1-787-672-2152.  Minimum of 15 with the group rate of $5.00 per person, no maximum.  All age groups pay $5.00 per person for the guided tour.  For additional information, email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
