  • Hackers (grades 4-12)
    Friday, September 18, 2015 - 4:00pm
    Youth Services Activity Room

    It's not what you think! A hacker is someone who enjoys building, rebuilding, and modifying software; someone who enjoys testing limits and seeing what is possible. In this Hackers we will be tinkering with Arduino microcontrollers. Already familiar with Arduino? Try out our LittleBits Arduino Coding kit. All participants of the Hackers class will be eligible to check out Arduino Kits from the library.

    This program is made possible by the generous donation from PotashCorp.

    Friday, September 18, 4-5:00 p.m.

  • Dave Specter - Jazz/Blues Salon Concert
    Friday, September 18, 2015 - 7:30pm

    Our fantastic new performance stage deserves a fantastic new concert series. The Friday Jazz Salon will feature Chicago artists who regularly perform in Chicago’s jazz, blues and folk clubs here to Northbrook. Our first performance will feature first- tier blues and jazz guitarist, Dave Specter, who has earned an international reputation as one of the premier talents on the Chicago blues scene. He has always brought intelligence and sharp, crisp playing to the music table, a sort of contemporary version of T-Bone Walker. He has recently been featured in Vintage Guitar and Downbeat magazines and has been a 5 time Critic’s Choice in the Chicago Reader.

    “Dave Specter is a global ambassador of Chicago blues” – Chicago Sun Times

    “One of the few top-tier guitarists” - Downbeat
