Meriden Public Library

Meriden Public Library was delighted to host the Shoreline Ringers on March 16, 2019. The Shoreline Ringers brought their bells, knowledge and talent to not only teach us about the bells, but entertained us with their music. Everyone had a wonderful time! Don’t hesitate to book the Shoreline Ringers – they are excellent!

Libraries Rock! Handbell Education at Waterford Library

“Libraries Rock”:  August 2018
Summer reading theme for 2018

Shoreline Ringers provided an evening program on Monday, August 13th at the Waterford library on the history of bells, the history of handbells, how handbells were introduced to the United States and how they are made. The evening also included a demonstration of handbell ringing and audience participation. Many in the audience had heard handbells before, but this program educated them in the history and ringing techniques they had not heard before, which they found most interesting.
