The Green County Piano teachers recently presented checks to five Green County libraries. Shown here, left to right, are Juda piano teacher Julie Zimmerman, Kara Blue from the Albany Public Library, Carolyn Seaver from the Monticello Public Library, Monticello piano teacher Carolyn Hilliard, Lauren White from the New Glarus Public Library, Monroe piano teacher Rita Farris and Suzann Holland from the Monroe Public Library. Missing from the photo are Angela Noel from the Brodhead Public Library and Monticello piano teacher Dawn Jordan.

The Green County Piano Teachers presented checks to each of the five Green County libraries and to the Monroe Arts Center recently. The libraries plan to use some of the money in the summer reading program, with the theme "Libraries Rock." The Monroe Arts Center donation will be used to help defray the cost of restringing the grand piano.

The money was earned through pledges by Green County piano students for performing at the Piano Play-A-Thon in December, when 102 students entertained shoppers at the Monroe ShopKo. The Play-A-Thon donations and pledges reached $2,046.

In addition to the donations to the libraries and the Monroe Arts Center, a portion of the funds will be used to support the 2018 ensemble recital that will be performed by the Green County piano students in November.

Green County piano teachers participating in the event included Rita Farris, Carolyn Hilliard, Dawn Jordan, Gwen Shaker, Mary Soddy, Ann Uresk and Julie Zimmerman.
