Shelley Pearsall: Book Launch Party

02/18/2020 7:00 PM

Come celebrate the newest book by local children’s author, Shelley Pearsall.  Things Seen From Above (grades 4 - 6) is the heart-warming story of an outcast boy who sees the world in his own unique way—and the sixth grade girl who discovers his secret. This opportunity to meet Shelley Pearsall also includes a short program and reading, refreshments, and introductions of local students who helped with the book. All ages welcome. Books will be available for purchase and signing, courtesy of The Learned Owl Book Shop. Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library.

The Chardon Polka Band

01/21/2020 7:00 PM

This family-friendly program is back by popular demand! Come see a polka band with attitude. The Chardon Polka Band breathes new life into the polka genre with their offbeat antics and one-of-kind style. Performing polka favorites with new energy and excitement, this is a great concert for polka aficionados and non-polka-fans alike. The Chardon Polka Band plays traditional polkas, but sometimes morphs into modern renditions of the same songs. The band’s range of style is as eccentric as its members.
