DARIEN — Indian Prairie Library will be encouraged to make noise as they take the microphone during Singin’ in the Stacks, a fundraiser by the Indian Prairie Public Library Foundation.
Last year’s Dancin’ in the Stacks event was such a hit, the IPPL Foundation is inviting people back for another party amongst the shelves, but this time, there will be singing and dancing.
Singin’ in the Stacks will take place from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Nov. 3, with music by Bandaroke. Rather than recorded tracks, Bandaroke supplies live music to sing along to. The band’s extensive playlist lets aspiring entertainers choose from jazz classics to rock ballads.
Each singer will receive a prize from the band and will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize.
Each $20 ticket includes snacks and a drawing for an engraved brick in the library’s Reading Garden, along with other door prizes.
Singin’ in the Stacks is for library patrons 21 and older and will include a cash bar.
“Our community is so supportive of the library,” said Crystal Megaridis, president of the foundation. “I know we’ll have a great turnout and a great time.”
Formed in 1994, the foundation supports the library and its continued growth. Money from Singin’ in the Stacks will help to enhance technology in the library’s children’s department.
“Computer literacy is an absolutely essential skill for students today,” said Library Director Jamie Bukovac. “If the foundation can help us to provide the latest computers as well as the software that the schools are using, we can bridge the gap that many families experience.”
