Come on out to the Seaside Public Library on Saturday, May 14, at 1 p.m. and learn to play the ukulele at the Ukalaliens workshop, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library. Sign-up required at the circulation desk or by phone.

Musician-teachers Kate Power and Steve Einhorn travel in Johnny Appleseed fashion from town to town to introduce the fun of playing the ukulele.

They will bring 30 ukes for participants to use and will teach beginners, in a friendly atmosphere, how to play these simple instruments.

The mission of the Ukalaliens workshop is to grow budding musicians from scratch through ukulele and to give the uke-curious the opportunity to the play the little musical powerhouse that is the ukulele.

The Seaside Public Library is located at 1131 Broadway. For more information call 503-738-6742 or visit
