CONCERT

July 27

The Friends sponsored a fun music event in the summer of 2017.  An engaging local musical group called "What She Said" played popular songs from the '70's, '80's, and '90's to a wide range of members and the public.  The event, originally planned for the Library lawn, was held on the 3rd Floor due to rain. Ice cream and cookies were also served.
