Library to play host to local guitarist

So Libraries aren't just for books.
Jay Mankita, guitarist, will be guesting at the Dormann Library, Bath, on July 18 at 2 p.m.

He will hopefully be giving an interactive musical performance including eccentric, new songs about the natural world, with his centre of attention on creepy-crawlies to support the 2008 reading theme, "Catch the Reading Bug".

A campaigner for environmental integrity, Mankita tours in his van, which runs on recycled vegetable products. He takes pleasure in presenting his car to the kids after the show, and chatting about how each of us can be a factor in making a healthier world through effortless changes.

Mr. Mankita merges conventional blues, ragtime, and swing styles with an eccentric originality.

The Dormann Library concert is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts' Decentralization Program administered locally by The ARTS of the Southern Finger Lakes.
