Starting Monday, March 4 and most likely continuing for several days, a geothermal test bore will take place in the library parking lot to determine the future energy source of the new library. The public should expect that parking will be impacted for several days as the rig arrives, drills, then is removed. Some level of noise will also be a factor as drilling will be followed by a generator running to conduct a conductivity test. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Áine Minogue Harp Concert

Wednesday, March 6, 7:00—8:00 PM, Meeting Room

Join us in our Meeting Room for a spellbinding concert featuring Irish harpist Áine Minogue.


Áine “combines a hypnotic Celtic spirituality and contemporary sophistication in her playing and delicately lovely singing.” – BOSTON GLOBE 

Born in Borrisokane, County Tipperary, Áine’s large musical family encouraged her to pursue a number of different instruments during her youth (which explains her obvious skill at arranging). They played together as a family and attended fleadhs (traditional music festivals). But it was at the age of twelve while at boarding school in County Galway that Áine discovered her true love – the harp which soon became the basis for her unique compositional and vocal style. After completing school she spent three years developing her talent as a harpist at Bunratty Castle, County Clare – the perfect setting to emphasize the harp’s lyrical connection to Irish history.

Like so many Irish before her, Áine moved to the United States and settled in New England and continued to concentrate on the traditional music of her homeland, both as a soloist and collaborator. As well as writing music, Áine takes an ancient art form, extensively explores its underpinnings but adds her own creativity to each piece, combining ancient and modern.
