Summer 2010 in the Park

Summer 2010 is off to a smashing start in Way Park, with a glorious Midsommar celebration and a surprisingly rain-free Books & Stars with the Mu Daiko Drums. And we've still got a full slate of family-friendly festivities happening here on Northfield's beautiful West Side in July and August.

The Library's Books & Stars program returns to Way Park on July 21 with the Splatter Sisters. And you'll want to make plans right now to spend the weekend of August 6-8 in the park, when we're hosting ELEVEN separate concerts as part of the Vintage Band Festival!

We hope you'll join your friends and neighbors at Way Park for all these great events!
