Library celebrates

Musical Sundays The Woodinville Library will celebrate its fourth anniversary with a special after-hours concert on Sunday evening Feb. 9 at 6 p.m., featuring the Salieri String Quartet. The free festivities, open to all ages, will also include refreshments hosted by the Friends of the Library, scrapbooks of library history, and tours of the library's new electronic resources.
   The library opened in February, 1993, and has circulated 2.5 million items in the four years since its opening. Almost 40,000 people have attended the more than 1,000 programs held in the last four years. Recently, the library introduced new services on library workstations including word processing, telephone directories, magazine indexing complete with the full text of articles, and access to the World Wide Web. More services will be added in the next few months.
   The concert is the fourth in the library's 1996-97 Musical Sundays concert series, with the last presentation in March. The Salieri String Quartet will entertain for the anniversary with its upbeat, eclectic repertoire ranging from Bach to Bernstein to bluegrass, and include traditional as well as original arrangements. This is a return engagement for the group, which last performed in the library's 1995 Sunday concert series.
