Irish eyes are smiling and so were the nearly 100 patrons who attended An Irish Concert With Pat Gaughan on Tuesday, March 12. Sponsored by the Mount Prospect Public Library Foundation, the evening featured two celebrations in one – a musical prelude to St. Patrick’s Day plus the official launching of the Library’s year-long 70th Anniversary Celebration.
MPPL Executive Director Marilyn Genther welcomed participants with a surprise billed as Random Acts of Prizes. Those in attendance received a pack of sticky notes, a small token of appreciation from the Library to thank the community for its ongoing support. The Irish Music Concert was the first of Seven Signature Events in honor of the 70th Anniversary. The Seven Signature Events will take place throughout 2013 and are select programs that represent the scope and breadth of what the Library does best.
