    Patchouli -- Folk Music for the Family
    Sunday, May 21,
    1-2:30 p.m. Ages 8 & up

    Enjoy a soulful fusion of blazing Spanish and world guitar instrumentals, spine tingling vocal harmonies, and epic folk rock anthems. 
    An extraordinary bond is immediately apparent as two guitars merge into one acoustic wall of sound and their innovative, percussive flat-picking and hybrid fingerstyle techniques leave even astute listeners wondering where the drummer is. This high-energy band will get your feet tapping. Register here.
    This program is funded by the Friends of the Library.

    Drop by our parking lot where members of the McHenry Police Department will be on hand to help anyone properly install car seats in cars, check any currently installed seats and answer any questions regarding which safety seat is best for your child or grandchild. 
    Library Closed on Memorial Day
    The library will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
