Looking for Something Special to Share with Your Valentine?
Join us for Music in the Stacks: two FREE February concerts at the Library

The weekend before Valentine's Day, the Library's 2nd Floor Fireside Room will host Music in the Stacks. Two separate musicians, two distinct styles, two different days, two ways to celebrate.

Friday, February 10 from 6:00-7:30pm local vocalist and guitarist Marie Jarreau presents "Love Leaves a Memory" concert. Celebrate the loves in your life this Valentine's Day with familiar cover songs as well as original love songs from Marie's vast repertoire. 

Originally from New Orleans, Ms. Jarreau has been part of the local Verde Valley music scene for over five years. With two CDs to her credit, she is a familiar performer from Sedona and Cottonwood to Camp Verde. 

Monday, February 13 from 6:30-8:00pm nationally renowned musician, Marc Berger presents selections from his album, RIDE, capturing the vastness and romance of the West's wide open spaces. Celebrate Arizona's statehood day with Mr. Berger, whose lifelong love affair with the American West inspires his music.

Marc has performed at Austin's SXSW Music Festival, the Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals, and has opened shows for Bob Dylan, and other national acts.  His song "The Last One", was a staple of Richie Havens' concerts for over twenty five years, and has been quoted in the NY Times and featured on The CBS Evening News.
