Thanks to everyone who came out to the Library's "Musical Weekend." Both the B.D. Lenz Trio and the Ambassador String Quartet played to appreciative audiences.

If you missed the B.D. Lenz concert, check out his music online on the Garageband web site or on his own home page.

The Library offered special "quiet areas" over the weekend for those looking for a place away from the music to study. When the Library is hosting a musical event, as a staff member where the "quiet area" is on that particular day.
