On January 31 at 7 p.m., the library will host a drumming workshop called “Living in the Rhythm.” This educational program will take you on a journey of sound and rhythm from ancient Australia to Africa and beyond. World drums, percussion and storytelling will be used to create a global rhythm ensemble. The program will take place in the multipurpose room at the Ephrata Public Library and is free and open to the public. Registration is required and can be done at www.ephratapubliclibrary.org or by calling 717-738-9291. The program is part of the library’s winter reading program.
