Go Into the Holiday Season With Noon Tunes at Downtown Library

Live music, food, and the Downtown Library.  Now there’s a trio everyone can enjoy.

 Bring your lunch to the Downtown Library Atrium, 300 Park Avenue, on Thursdays in November and December from 11:30am to 1:00pm for “Noon Tunes,” a variety of musical styles that will go down smoothly with your soup and sandwich.

“Noon Tunes just keeps rolling along,” said the Metropolitan Library System’s Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow.  “These short, informal lunch time concerts have become a downtown tradition now, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue the series.”

Get ready for the Holiday Season by visiting the Downtown Library for some music to make you smile.  Bring your own lunch or purchase a sandwich or some soup at the library’s 1st Edition Café.
