The Sawyer Free Library (SFL) was rocking this past Friday night, June 20th when wizard rockers Harry and the Potter performed for more than 170 fans of all ages. Kids, teens, adults, squibs and wizards, and witches danced and sang along to the band who played fan favorites and songs from their just-released album: Lumos. Emceeing the show was Tony Goddess, local rock and roll musician, and producer of Bang-a-Song Studios in Gloucester where Harry and the Potters recorded this newest album. This show was the first stop in the band’s 60 city concert tour of public libraries across the USA.
The concert which was made possible by the generous support of The Friends of the SFL kicked off the Library’s Summer Reading Program: A Universe of Stories which runs July – August. The fun program challenges readers of all ages to read throughout the summer for the opportunity to earn great prizes. There also will be many free, educational, and entertaining programs for library patrons to attend, providing a productive option for long summer days.
