Music Brings Us Together

Increasingly, libraries are community gathering places. People from all walks of life encounter one another at the library, where they share the joy of learning, and sometimes, the uplifting sounds of live performances.

A summertime favorite at the library, when balmy weather affords outdoor gatherings, is the weekly “City Sounds: Live Music on the Plaza.” Talented local performers fill the outdoor library stage with exhilarating live jazz and the compelling sounds of big band, pulling the community together through a shared experience.

Foundation supporters make it possible for people to gather to enjoy a free concert at the end of a warm summer day.
