Drop-in Baby Lapsit Storytime at McAuliffe

Ages 0-2 with an adult.
Come sing and play with words, rhyme and puppets at baby lapsit time. Parents can network while babies pick up phonological awareness, one of six foundations of future reading success. This informal program for babies and their parents/caregivers runs about 20 minutes and introduces the pleasures of the library to your baby or toddler.

Teen Tech Time: Electronic Music Production (ALL SPOTS FILLED)

Teen Tech Time is a new program that will run during the spring and fall of 2017. The Framingham Public Library will be teaming up with Empow Studios to provide a series of STEAM programs focusing on programming, tech design, animation, robotics and more!

All of the music you hear today on the radio or in the movies need electronic components. Whether or not you’ve played an instrument before, this class will introduce you to becoming the audio engineer. Lead by an expert teacher, students will work with a digital audio workstation using loops, samples, virtual instruments, and MIDI controllers, as their compositions start to come to life. After students lay down their individual tracks, they’ll learn about mixing techniques including equalizers, panning, and filters, to augment their sounds and finalize their tunes.

Space is limited, and currently the program is full. If you'd like to be placed on the waitlist, please contact our teen librarian John Garrigan at jgarrigan@minlib.net, and he will get back to you if a spot opens up.
