The popular jazz & blues band of Pat Loomis and his Friends will play a “farewell-to-the-old” library concert on Wednesday, October 23 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at the South End library. The branch library (which dates from 1971) will close for a few months starting on Friday, October 25 for a downstairs interior facelift, and is expected to re-open by February 2020. The library staff will temporarily relocate to other branches (West End, Fields Corner) and the Central Library in Copley Square. They are expected to return by January 2020, and spend several weeks reorganizing and reshelving the collection before the library reopens for the public in its “refreshed” state.
The party is free and open to all. Staff and FOSEL will serve refreshments.
