(Seguin) -- Whether it's an afternoon ventriloquist skit to help pull laughs from children or an evening music concert, the Seguin Public Library today is continuing its summer party with a pair of scheduled events. The events are part of its "Libraries Rock" Summer Reading Program for children and adults.
Children's Librarian Hannah Farmer says first on today's schedule is the ventriloquist program "Nancy and Her Friends." Farmer says there will be stories, songs and some fun dialogue about how you can do your best at life no matter where the journey takes you.
"Nancy Burks Worcester is a ventriloquist so she is bringing her animal friends which are puppets with her to perform a show called " Road River Rock." It is for ages 3 to 10 but all ages are welcome. It is going to be geared toward those ages and it's going incorporate our "Libraries Rock" music theme for the summer. It's going to be a lot of fun," said Farmer.
Nancy and Her Friends will take the stage at 2 p.m. today. Farmer says the city is excited about welcoming her to the library for the very first time.
"I have seen her multiple times at librarian trainings and she is hilarious so I'm really excited that she was in town. She's from the North Texas area so she usually performs at libraries up there," said Farmer.
The library tonight will also host a concert featuring Eric Middleton, lead singer for Texas band Midnight River Choir. Joining him will be guest performer Amber Middleton.
Assistant Library Director Sylvia Christy says the concert is being made possible thanks to the Friends of the Seguin Public Library.
"He is pretty much country music -- a little bit more modern. He's the lead singer for the Midnight River Choir. They are from the New Braunfels, San Marcos area. So it is pretty nice to have a local band come and perform. They are really good," said Christy.
People are encouraged to sample his music online and then come in for a live performance. Christy says although the concert is free, tickets are required.
"They are awesome so we are really excited that they are coming to perform for us. We want to thank Bailey Jo, our youth services assistant, who made the connection for us. We want to make sure that we are within our fire marshal restraints and that we do not overdue it. So, we have 120 tickets and they have started to go out. It's a first come, first serve basis and we are giving up to two tickets per person just to be fair to everybody who might want to attend today," said Christy.
The concert gets underway at 6:30 p.m. today at the library. The library is located at 313 W. Nolte St.
