Newly Cataloged Balkan Slavic Music Tapes
Interested in Slavic heritage and culture? Did you ever travel with, or know someone who participated in, a "junior tammy" - a tamburitza orchestra - as a teenager?
At the Multimedia Services Desk on the third floor, you can now listen to live recordings of tamburitza concerts, as well as traditional folk instruments, by American Balkan Slavic groups ranging from the upper Midwest to Canada.
These recordings were made for the Greater Cleveland Ethnographic Museum in the 1980's on a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Ethnomusicologist Walt Mahovlich, founder of the eastern European music band Harmonia, and folklorist Walter March, used the recordings to make the UNESCO-award-winning album "Nova Domovina: Balkan Slavic Music of the Industrial Midwest."

Celebrate Occupational Therapy Month!
Occupational Therapy (OT) is an allied health profession focused on improving a person's ability to participate in the everyday activities of living at home, at school, at work, or at play. Birth defects, injuries, illnesses, diseases, and the effects of aging can cause people of all ages to have difficulty performing everyday activities like personal self-care, playing, homemaking, and working. Occupational Therapists offer creative solutions to help these adults and children so they can participate more fully in the daily activities that are meaningful to them. OT assists people in developing the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives.
Visit the display on the first floor of the Library to learn more about Occupational Therapy.
