Central Library Concert Series
The Central Library's 2013 Winter/Spring Concert Series will not be presented this year due to preparation for the move to the new Central Library, scheduled to open in July 2013. We are grateful to all who have supported previous concert series through your attendance and donations.
The New Central Library is planning to present a Fall 2013 Concert Series starting in August. In the meantime, we will offer occasional concerts until the current library closes in May.
