The Mountlake Terrace Library wraps up it special summer programming for children next week with two events sure to delight.

On Tuesday, Aug. 13, Professor Hiphop Brainypants will be leading children ages 6-11 in a study of how and why musical instruments sound the way they do. In “Juba This & Juba That: The Science of Music” kids will learn what makes a guitar “twang” and a drum go “BOOM.” The event is slated to begin at 2 p.m.

On Saturday, Aug. 17, the library hosts the Summer Reading Program final event: a presentation of The Magic Rock by the Shaver Marionettes. Hand and rod puppets bring to life the story of Spider, his family, and the consequences of greed. The one-hour show, intended for school-aged children and their families, begins at 1 p.m.

The Mountlake Terrace Library is located at 23300-58th Ave. W. More information on the library and its many programs can be found here.
