Jessica Day of Midcoast Music Together will offer the first in a new series of free family music programs Friday, Jan. 13, at 11 a.m. at Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St./routes 173 and 52 in Lincolnville Center. Families with children from birth to age 5 are invited to come sing, dance and explore musical instruments together.

Day, who offers her classes throughout the Midcoast, said she believes music can create a strong foundation for all learning. All that is required of parents in her classes is enthusiastic participation and the ability to have fun with children.

This series at the Lincolnville Community Library is generously sponsored by the Ethel and W. George Kennedy Family Foundation. It will continue on the first Friday of each month through June. For more information, call 763-4343 or email
