Jessica Day of Midcoast Music Together will offer the first in a series of free family music programs Friday, Jan. 8, at 11 a.m. at the Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St/routes 52/173. Families with children from newborn to age 5 are invited to come sing, move, shake and explore musical instruments together.

The internationally recognized early childhood program emphasizes natural learning by encouraging involvement with the whole family. All that is required of parents, said Day, is enthusiastic participation and having fun with children.

The Friday music program also will be offered Feb. 5, March 4, April 1 and May 6 at 11 a.m. The series is generously sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. For more information, call 763-4343 or email
