Jacob Johnson brought his musical act to the Lebanon-Wilson County Public Library on Thursday as part of the library’s summer reading program.
Johnson is a multi-instrumentalist who uses a highly interactive approach to educate and entertain children. He plays the upright bass, guitar, ukulele, trumpet, erhu and more.
At the library, Johnson used his instruments and hand-puppets to keep the children engaged and entertained.
This year’s summer reading program is called “Libraries Rock” and features a music theme for children from birth through sixth grade, but there are categories for teens and adults, as well. Adult and youth prizes include gift cards for completing a bingo-type board reading list. Children in kindergarten through sixth grade can win a pass to the Wilson County Fair, and prekindergarten children can win a pass to the Jimmy Floyd Recreation Center.
Each week, the library plays host to live entertainment for children Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Upcoming acts include Kidd Band with Kevin Kidd on Tuesday; the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency on June 28; magician Scott Tripp on July 3; and more.
