ZOO LIBRARY BENEFIT TOUR POSTERThursday, July 26th, 7pm Library Benefit Concert, Library Park

Dave Rosane and the Zookeepers!

The Zookeepers are a little bit country, a little bit punk and roll. A tad glam, a wee grunge. With particles of goth & psychedelia. A glaze of pop.

The 2018 Summer Reading Program theme is “Libraries Rock!” Join us July 26th as we have some fun in the library park (rain site Valley Players Theater) and raise money the Joslin Library!

All donations at the door go to the Joslin Library & the continuation of our literacy programs and efforts to fulfill community-oriented activities.

“If ever a combo embodied the axiom ‘Think globally, act locally”, it would be the Zookeepers. Dave Rosane’s lively folk songs take a look at the world and distill global issues on a smaller, homespun scale” – Dan Bolles, Seven Days
