July 12th Newspaper Column

We have music to delight you this weekend! Friday afternoon we host the final concert in the Green Lake Festival of Music’s family series. Noah Harmon presents “Jazzin’ All Around” at 1:30, in front of the fireplace. The concert is free and open to everyone, so I hope you will stop in for some cool jazz on a hot afternoon.

Saturday morning we welcome hammer dulcimer player Phil Passen back to the library. You may remember Phil from a Civil War themed concert he gave here a couple years ago. This time around he’s drawing inspiration from the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Don’t expect to hear all gloomy music, however. Phil will be playing “the hits” from a hundred years ago, as well as some songs written about the disaster. The concert begins at 10:30 a.m., again in front of the fireplace.

The featured performer on Monday morning for the summer reading program is Jim Mitchell, a magician. Jim will be dazzling and delighting his audience beginning at 10:00. There will be crafts to go and story times to look forward to, too.

And our furry friend Rusty has appointments available for readers on Wednesday afternoon, July18, from 3-5:00. Rusty is our reading therapy dog, and she’s an absolute love. Call the library at 294-3572 or send an email to director@greenlakelibrary.org to schedule a 20-minute appointment (we recommend fifteen minutes of reading and five minutes of cuddle time).
