ELBURN—The Elburn Town and Country Public Library will host four free concerts on the lawn behind the library on July 15 and 29 and Aug. 5 and 19.

The library has held a concert annually at the end of the summer reading program in the past, but this is the first year it is offering the four-concert series.

“The attendance was always good for the year-end concert, so I thought this year I would also try having four concerts with a variety of music styles,” series coordinator Cathy Korthals said. “These concerts are being held to entertain and thank our patrons.”

Attendance is free for the concerts, which the library pays for with help from the Friends of the Library fundraisers.

Anyone is welcome to attend. Concert-goers may bring their own chairs and refreshments. Attendees may sit anywhere on the grass and if the crowd is large, people may sit in Prairie Park, located east of the library.

The library owns the garage behind (to the north of) the library and the bands will be set up in the driveway there, Korthals said.

Parking is in the library parking lot and overflow parking can use the Village Hall lot since the village offices will be closed.

The library is open until 9 p.m. Concert-goers may step inside to cool off and are also welcome to use the bathroom facilities. If it rains, the concert will take place inside the library. For more information, call (630) 365-2244.
