Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I enter a library, when I enter the world of books, I feel the ghosts of the past on my shoulders urging me to speech.  I hear Patrick Henry cry to the Burgsses, ‘Is Life so dear, or Peace so sweet, to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?’  I hear Sojourner Truth tell me that the hand that rocks the cradle can also rock the boat, and William Lloyd Garrison say, ‘I am in earnest, I will not be silenced.’

Mowtown Family Concert in the Park

Event Date: 
Aug 2 2014 - 11:30am

Contagious high-energy…that’s Rick Kelley’s totally interactive, original and brimming with everything “fun, memorable and exciting about Motown hits”, family show! Parents on stage as background singers…put on those shades and go “Under the Boardwalk.” Can you back-up “Wait Till the Midnight Hour?” “Shake It Up Baby” with a hula hoop? When’s the last time you did the Limbo Rock? I “heard it through the grapevine” that THIS is a not-to-be missed concert.

For more information, please call the LaSalle Public Library at 815-223-2341.

Join us for the second Free 2014 family summer concert hosted by the LaSalle Park District and the LaSalle Public Library. Pack a picnic lunch and lawn chairs, and head on over to Pulaski Park, 1001 Fifth Street between Tonti and Crosat Streets in LaSalle.
