Y, oh y...

March 22 - the birthday of Holy Roman Emperor Maxilimilian I, the Pentium processor, and the poet Billy Collins. Things are as busy as can be around the library today in preparation for Volodymyr Vynnytsky's piano concert here tonight (a few tickets still available!)... tables to be moved, seats to be placed, wine to be chilled, all that sort of stuff. As always, a big thanks to our Music Committee for their help, and a double thanks to Cowan Holdings, Ltd., for sponsoring the event. Volodymyr is such an impressive pianist... your loyal blogger can't wait!

Also upcoming... tomorrow is the first evening for our Sunshine Readers programme! The CofC Tri-Delts will host a fun children's story hour starting at 6:30 PM tomorrow here at the Library Society. Parents, grandparents, and babysitters are encouraged to bring their wee ones, three and up, to this exciting adventure in reading. Kids are encouraged to bring a pillow or stuffed bear, and come dressed in their jammies for this pre-bedtime event.

Parents... wearing your jammies is allowed, too. Just... use your best judgement.

Hits, parades.

March 12! Birthday of the Girl Scouts, Jack Kerouac, and the anniversary of the start of the Williamite War in Ireland. Which reminds me, St. Patrick's Day falls on a Saturday this year... so remember, King Street will be closed for the Ancient Order of Hibernians parade sometime between 10-11AM. If you're looking to drive to the Library, you'll have to come before or after the festivities. Also, the Hibernians (the other Hibernians) have their parade up Broad Street starting at 11AM, so be mindful of that, too, if you're headed this way.

Another great reason to head this way this week: Unedited is back for Unedited: Musical Madness. Enjoy a night of drama, intrigue, and Broadway hits with Laura Ball, starting at 7PM this Thursday night Tickets are $15, and available by clicking here.
