Library Arts Center Side Lawn
RAIN LOCATION: In the event of rain, the performances will take place at the Newport Recreation Department (right down the road from us at 65 Belknap Ave. Newport). This will always be posted on our Facebook page and at the Library Arts Center website if there is a location change.
Performances are approximately 45 minutes to one hour long, and are free and open to all. Our audience usually ranges from toddlers and preschoolers, all the way up to students in Grade 8, and performances generally have a wide appeal for kids of all ages!

We are able to offer these fun, engaging, and enriching performances due to generous financial support from the Friends of the Richards Free Library.
*Feel free to bring a blanket or beach chairs, as occasionally the grass on the side lawn is still a bit moist with the morning dew.
