What’s happenin’ @ the library

Thanks to The Polka Dots for a lively set on Saturday, September 12th. Their self-proclaimed “new blue oldtimey jazzy gypsy swing” filled the library and had patrons swayin’ in their seats. Did you miss the fun? Catch them September 24-26 in Berryville at the Watermelon Park Festival. Or become a fan of the band on Facebook and you can watch video clips of their library performance.

It’s time for 1 book 1 community. Stop by the library and pick up your FREE copy of The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain, a graphic memoir appropriate for young readers and adults. After you’ve read The Wall, join us on Tuesday, October 20th @ 7pm for a book discussion here in Lovettsville, and go to the Rust Library on Thursday, October 22nd @ 7 pm to hear the author speak and sign books.
