From the Friends

The Friends are co-sponsoring the Words, Written and Sung reading, listening and discussion series at the library during February.
Led by Dr. Clyde McCants, the series examines the relationship between five operas and their written sources.  Participants read the story or play before the session, and then are treated to musical excerpts from the operas along with background information and commentary by Dr. McCants.
The  programs will be held each Tuesday evening in February at 7:00 p.m. at the library.  It is not necessary to attend every session in order to participate.
Call Sarah at the library for more information:
