Exercise, music, more at Merrimac library

MERRIMAC — These activities are planned at Merrimac Public Library:

Toddlers in Motion: Have fun and exercise with Cathy and Tracy Monday, March 12, from 11 to 11:30 a.m. for ages 2 to 4. No registration required.

Brothers Craig and Brian Herlihy, also known as the band Yoke Shire, will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a live performance of their latest CD release, "Awakening Celtic Spirits," on March 13 at 7 p.m. This free concert will be presented in a storyteller format. They will discuss the details of each song, why they chose it for the album and its historical background. Come tap your feet, clap your hands and be part of the fun and excitement. Check out their music at

Peeps Diorama Contest! Get creative with those beloved marshmallow Peeps. Drop off entries between March 19 and 22 during regular library hours. The contest is open to children, teens, adults or groups (family, friends, Scout troops, etc.) Limit one entry per person or group. Using Peeps and a small box (such as a shoebox), create a diorama. Choose any theme: book, movie, song, TV show, historical or current event. Humor and puns are encouraged. Check out the Internet for some fun examples. Public voting for Peeple's Choice contest winners will be at the library from March 26 to 30. Winners will be announced on April 2.
