If midnight is too late for your little ones, come celebrate New Year’s Eve at Noon. This party will be Tuesday, December 31, from 11:15 am to 12:00 pm, in the Olympia Room of the Tacoma Public Library. This is a free event that will be a countdown to the new year at this kid-friendly event featuring music by Nancy Stewart. Nancy Stewart is a musician who has won national and local awards for her song writing and children’s recordings. Children will be able to decorate a festive party hat and watch the ball drop at 12 noon. This event is recommended for families with children two years old and older.
Brian Leu, children’s librarian, at the Tacoma Public Library, discussed the importance of music, “Music Powers the Brain, simply singing with a child connects neural pathways, and increases the ability to retain information. Music builds a strong sense of rhythm, which leads to a better ability to understand and produce language. Singing develops spatial reasoning, which allows children to recognize patterns and later helps in problem-solving.”
No pre-registration is required for this event. For more information about the Noon Year’s Eve event, please call: 253 292-2001 extension 1111.
