Adult Events

MORNING CONCERT: Your Favorite Oldies Hits with Dyer Holdiay (*RR)
Wednesday, October 9, 11am
Enjoy an acoustic concert with Dyer Holiday featuring the oldies. Dyer Holiday is not your normal, run-of-the-mill acoustic act. Instead of creating original music or playing today's popular songs, they're most known for laying down the songs that you know and love, but haven't heard for the longest time. If you're looking to go back in time to re-visit some of your favorite classic hits, Dyer Holiday is your band! Made up of two musicians with the deepest love and appreciation for music, they take the time to polish each old classic and it shows in every performance! Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

FRIGHT NIGHT: Presidential Paranormal with Tim Weisberg (*RR)
