Two BIG Friends events on the way...

Hope you're making plans to join us for two very special events coming up on on July 31st and August 2nd!  

On Friday, July 31st, the Andover Friends of the Library are sponsoring a top-notch Bluegrass show for the whole family featuring the Feinberg Brothers!  These teenage brothers from the Bluegrass hamlet of Long Island have been performing all over the Northeast for the past several summers, and in June, they celebrated the release of their very first band CD.  Rourke (fiddle) and Patrick Feinberg (mandolin) have a classical music background, but they've been able to create their own classic brother-duet sound with a fine band that includes their dad, Ronnie Feinberg on guitar, Terry McGill on the banjo, and Peter Elegant playing the bass.  Bring your chairs and blankets for a FREE outdoor show at the Andover Gazebo, 35 School Road (located between the Andover Town Hall and the Andover Elementary School).
 Showtime is 6:30PM, and the show will be inside the Andover Community Room in the Town Hall in the event of rain.  The Friends will be selling ice cream that has been donated by Highland Park Market.  For a bit of a preview of the Feinbergs' sound, watch this YouTube clip of their appearance last summer on the Wheeling (WV) Jamboree:

Another big event happens for the Library Friends on Sunday, August 2nd when members will become sandwich makers at the Andover Subway (inside the X-Tra Mart on Route 6) from 4-7PM.  A full FIFTY (50!) PERCENT of any sandwich, drink, salad, cookie you buy between 4:00 and 7:00PM on August 2nd will be donated to the Andover Friends of the Library!  Last year, the Friends raised more than $400 during that three-hour time period, and we hope to top that amount this year.  With your help -- and your appetite! -- we can!  

If you'd like any information about either of these events, visit our Facebook postings on them here for the Feinberg Brothers show and here for the Subway fundraiser.  You can also call the library:  860-742-7428.  

Thanks for supporting these two great events -- we'll look forward to seeing you and several of your friends!!
