Your “Unquiet” Library

Get ready for a little Music in the Stacks at your library this coming Saturday, November 13. From 2 pm to 3 pm, Tom Rigney (the Lone Blues Man) will be performing an hour of blues harmonica and guitar music.

The inscription over the door of the Library at Thebes read “Medicine for the Soul.”
Come to the Burlington Public Library this Saturday for some Music for the Soul.

Noise happens (joyfully)

I remember going to Burlington’s original Carnegie library as a child; it was so quiet you could hear the clock ticking as you walked up the stairs. If you spoke above a whisper, you were likely to get shushed.

Things have changed a bit.  If you get too rowdy, we may ask you to tone it down a bit, but you may have noticed we’re not a “shushing” kind of library. 

Well, this coming Saturday afternoon (May 8), it will be even a bit noisier than usual. Our monthly “Music in the Stacks” performance will liven things up considerably from 2pm to 3 pm. Local accordionist Curt Tveit will be playing some foot-tapping music: a mixture of polka, Cajun, rock and roll, and more.

Our apologies in advance to anyone comes in looking for a little peace and quiet! Let us know, and we’ll open up a study room for you.
