Creative Strings Workshop and Festival performances at DCDL

The Delaware County District Library is delighted to be part of a very exciting event in Delaware—the Creative Strings Workshop and Festival.  Founded by Ohio native and former Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music Christian Howes, the Creative Strings Workshop and Festival offers string players from around the world an opportunity to study improvisation, composition, and styles outside the realm of classical music, while bringing Delaware a plethora of talent and musical energy.

Nearly 100 string players from around the world will be led in small ensembles in 20+ performances by world class performing artists.   Violins, cellos, violas, and basses will be heard singing and wailing through bluegrass, jazz, rock, Celtic, Latin, blues, avant garde and more.  The Library will be hosting four of their concerts during the week of June 30.images

On July 2 at the Powell Branch, you will be entertained and awed by these talented students with a performance beginning at 7:00 p.m.  Another group of students will be performing at 7:30 p.m. at the Ostrander Branch on the same evening.

If an afternoon performance fits better into your day, come to the Delaware (Main) Library or to the Orange Branch on July 3 at 2:00 p.m. to enjoy their lovely music.

The performances are free and open to the public, refreshments will be served, and the group will be selling their CD’s so you can enjoy their talents for a long time to come.

Hope to see you there!

We’re Breaking Eggs at the Delaware (Main) Library

IMG_20131118_104307_851 IMG_20131118_104324_202You know the expression that you have to break some eggs to make an omelet.  Well, we’re breaking eggs at the Library to improve the function and look of the Main Branch.

The egg breaking will be going on for a few weeks, and when you visit, you may occasionally find there are parts of the collection inaccessible to customers.  For example, we will be closing the computer room on Thursday and Friday, November 21 & 22, to move some shelves, reposition the computers, and change some technology.  You might want to consider visiting the Powell, Ostrander or Orange Branch to use their Internet computers, though.

I apologize for any inconvenience these renovations may cause, but I think you will be delighted with the finished product.

Thanks for your patience and understanding, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for when you visit the Library, please ask one of the staff members.  We’ll be happy to help you!

Mary Jane Santos, Director
