140th anniversary & Abbot Library History
Keith Lockhart Concert, Oct 4th


The Friends of Abbot Library cordially invite you to attend the official opening of our Sail Away Book Shoppe on the main level of the Library on Sunday, October 28th at 4:00 pm, immediately following our Fall Book Sale on the lower level from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The bookstore is managed by the Friends of Abbot Library under the direction of Steve Tseki, Christine Van Gemert and Rick Dodge, and has been unofficially open for nearly six months with great success.

Please join us to wish them well and to hear about future opportunities that will be available to you as the Friends reorganize their leadership roles. Refreshments will be served in the Reading Room (where the fireplace is on the main level) immediately after the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Keith Lockhart and the Beacon Brass Quintet to celebrate Abbot Public Library's 140th Anniversary!

Join the Board of Trustees, Thursday, October 4, in welcoming Keith Lockhart and the Beacon Brass Quintet to celebrate Abbot Public Library's 140th Anniversary!

Maestro Lockhart pauses to reflect on his experiences over three decades... great artistic collaborations with stars from all over the entertainment world as well as memorable concerts. He offers his own insights into the strength and challenges of contemporary American musical culture, with an engagingly honest look at what he has learned about leadership... and life along the way. The audience will learn about music in America, and a bit more about the Boston Pops, from one of our generation's most visible, celebrated and communicative classical musicians.

His conversation will be highlighted with musical excerpts played by the Beacon Brass Quintet.

Balcony seating: $50 per person at http://abbot140.eventbrite.com.

Limited floor seating is available at $100 per person. Contact abbot140tickets@gmail.com for more information.

This event is presented by the Abbot Public Library Fund, Inc.
