This Saturday, April 11 the Davenport Public Library has two very exciting events planned for your enjoyment! First stop at the Fairmount Street Library at 2:00 p.m. for the unveiling of our new library mascot, Libby – The Library Dog! Enjoy crafts, story time, and refreshments as Libby’s story is told on how she became part of the Davenport Public Library. Children and their families will also have an opprotunity to have their picture taken with Libby! Don’t miss welcoming our new friend!
Then the Friends of the Davenport Public Library have their inaugural RE@D – River-city Entertainment at Davenport – Variety Show at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Davenport North High School. The show features everything from magic, to dance, to the music of sensational blues artist, Ellis Kell! Tickets can be purchased in advance at either Davenport Public Library for $4 for children (10 and under) and seniors (55 +), and $8 for all other ages. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $10 for all ages. Visit our website for a list of all of the entertainers.
Don’t miss a very exciting day in our community! If you want to attend both events (like myself), visit Libby at 2:00 at the Fairmount Street Library and then go to the variety show at 7:00 at the North High School Auditorium. All proceeds go to funding the new Davenport Public Library that will be built at 6000 Eastern Avenue!
