This summer, a statewide initiative of Governor Hickenlooper will combine forces with Colorado public libraries to spread the joy of music and raise awareness of the importance of music education to communities across the state. Under the leadership of co-chairs Governor John Hickenlooper and Isaac Slade, lead singer of the band The Fray, Take Note Colorado is a statewide initiative to provide access to musical instruments and instruction to every K‑12 student in Colorado, in recognition that music is a vital part of a well-rounded, vibrant education. And in the summer of 2018, public libraries across Colorado and the country will celebrate the joy of music for all ages with the summer learning program theme of music and the slogan “Libraries Rock!” This will encourage Colorado’s residents of all ages to listen to, play, learn about, and have fun with music this summer and beyond through the state’s public libraries. To learn more about this collaboration between Take Note Colorado and public libraries, please view this great video. Take Note Colorado!
