The Pottstown Regional Public Library's Youth Department brought the hip hop dance troupe IlStyle and Peace to Ringing Rocks Elementary School's Summer Playground last week.

The youth department travels our patron area bringing literacy and enlightening experiences to youth of all ages.

"We want our young patrons to experience what is available to them through the library. More than books,
the library provides an arena and tools for children to explore their world and prepare for a successful future. Visiting the summer playground brings an experience that links reading, fun, and education," said Leslie Stillings, the library's youth director 

The hip hop dance group "IlStyle and Peace" brought a message that all dreams are possible for everyone -- which echoes one of the purposes of public libraries; free and equal access to materials and experiences that aids the citizen in their chosen pursuits.

"It was so sweet – the children loved it so much that they approached the dancers with crayons asking for their autographs!" Stillings said of the performance.

The program will be at Pottsgrove Summer Playground at 10:30 for the next two weeks as well.

On Thursday July 25, it will present a program named: “Silly Joe Sings!”

And on Thursday Aug. 1, “The Academy of Natural Sciences” will present: "Animals with Bad Reputations."
