Music for the Children and the Children's Room on Saturday

YORKTOWN, N.Y.-- Swatches of fabric hang on the wall in the children’s room of the John C. Hart Library showing the proposed carpeting and colors for the room.

Beneath those swatches and blueprints sits a photo and information about the upcoming Kurt Gallagher concert fundraiser, to raise funds for the carpet, paints and other renovations the library is currently planning.

Gallagher , a well-known children’s musician, will entertain children this Saturday at 3 p.m. at Yorktown Stage in a concert to raise funds for the renovation of the Children’s Room. Gallagher has performed at the John C. Hart library several times before, so it decided to bring him back for the fundraiser, explained Library Director Pat Barresi.

“He’s very popular among the kids and he has a following of people who will come to our library to see him from other places in Northern Westchester, “ Barresi said. “The kids just have a great and exciting time when they see him perform.”

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Children’s desk for $10 a child or $15 for adults.

“He’s just got a way about him that the children just seem to love,” said librarian Kathleen Scanlon. “He entertains a wide range of children and it’s just so inviting for all of them, they all love to get involved when he’s performing.”

The children are the priority in the Children’s room at the John C. Hart Library and as the library kicks off their fundraisers, the children are the main audience.

“They just adore him,” said director of the children’s department Christine Piattelli. “He’s engaging. All the children, even the parents look forward to his visits here.”
