The Jefferson County Library and the Jefferson County Cultural Coalition partnered to bring local Central Oregon musicians, Tony Smile and Mosley Wotta, to every school in Jefferson County last spring. Librarian Patricia Smith says, “The students really got into his performance. I loved how Mosley Wotta incorporates early literacy into his programs.”
Mosley Wotta and Tony Smiley will be playing at Jefferson County Library’s summer reading grand finale. This program brings early literacy, summer reading, schools, the public library, and a cultural institution together to provide a fun language program for children whether or not they can get to the public library.
