Local music, by definition, is just that….music that comes from where you live. Local businesses, local artists, local farmers, local libraries…Cecil County has a wealth of these and so much more. This week, we had over 300 kids, adults, and families celebrate CCPL’s Summer Reading Picnic in the Park in North East. In my opinion, it doesn’t get much better than seeing a bunch of happy kids eating cold ice cream and dancing with their parents to the Chicken Dance. Or does it?
We’re not quite ready to stop celebrating the fact that we had over 5,000 kids, teens, and adults participate in Summer Reading this year. In fact, thanks to our Friends of the Library, we’ll keep the good times rolling on Friday, August 13th at 6 p.m. at the Elkton Central Library for our third annual End of the Summer Band Night. This year, we’ll be featuring music from local band Baygrass, a band of six down-home guys who also happen to play a pretty eclectic mix of bluegrass, alternative country, and a whole mess of other great tunes—not to mention inspiring harmonies, a banjo, mandolin, and a whole lotta pickin. This event is free, open to all and great fun for families, and we’ll provide refreshments to keep you cool, including Rita’s Water Ice. Please register by contacting us at 410.996.5600 ext. 481. or stop in to your local branch for assistance.
