Do you like live jazz music? Birthday cake? Both? The 18th annual Bix Birthday Bash will have all of that and more. Stop by the Eastern Avenue Branch Library on March 7th at 1 p.m. to hear the Bix All-Star Band. Stick around after the show, because we will also be serving birthday cake and ice cream in honor of what would have been Bix Beiderbecke’s 109th birthday.
Every Friday beginning June 19 through August 7, join the Davenport Public Library – Fairmount Street (3000 N. Fairmount Street) for a musical movie presentation at 2:00 p.m.
In June we have a couple of the newer musicals; High School Musical (June 19) and High School Musical 2 (June 26). Join Troy, Gabriella, and the rest of the High School Musical cast as they go through some of the turmoil of teenage love and friendship.
