LittleBigRead is an informal program for school age youth that pairs older kids with younger kids for one-on-one reading time. Younger kids can read to or be read to by older kids or they can take turns reading a book together. This program is meant to be a fun and no-pressure way to build a passion for reading for the fun of it. It is not a tutoring program or homework help. Books will be chosen by the readers from the library's collection or favorites can be brought from home. LittleBigRead meets weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m., unless otherwise noted, on the youth side of the library. No registration is necessary.

Jivin’ Ivan Whillock is Faribault’s Renaissance man. Although well-established as an internationally known woodcarver, he began his career as a musician playing in dance bands in the Rochester area. His band, "The Blue Notes," played live television in LaCrosse and Rochester, and on a live radio show out of Rochester. The ensemble specializes in music from the American songbook prior to the 1950s. The rest of the band features some of southern Minnesota’s finest musicians, Music Hall of Famer, Dr. Mike Hildebrandt, lead instrumentalist, and local theatre personality Dallas Musselmann is lead vocalist. Now in its sixth year as a band, the ensemble has honed its skills to be a true quality act. This Parks and Recreation Department event is sponsored by The Signature Bar and Grill and Quality Appliance.
