The Unquiet Library

The Unquiet Library is a time to sit back, unwind and “spin the black wheel” at Hiebert Library. During these events, our hosts will discuss and play some amazing music (much of it from our extensive vinyl LP collection). As proof that the library is not just for books or silent contemplation, the Unquiet Library programs are designed to share music in reflective, engaging, and sometimes even loud ways.  All events are open to the public. Please join us on the dates indicated below.

Chris Brown, "Bring Your Own Vinyl"
Consider yourself a vinyl aficionado or just love listening to music at 33 1/3? It’s B.Y.O.V. (Bring Your Own Vinyl) at the Unquiet Library! Bring one of your near and dear records and show it off to the group. Spin a song and share why you love it!  If you just want to come listen to some great music, you’re invited too! Bring a friend and both ears!

"Theremins and Synthesizers"
The name “theremin” might not mean much to you, but if you ever watched a 1950s sci-fi movie, sat through Moses calling down plagues on the Egyptians in The Ten Commandments, or (more recently) saw The Machinists or the episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon plays the Star Trek theme, you have heard theremin music. A theremin is played without anyone touching it. At this Unquiet Library, we'll listen to some early electronic music and have a chance to play a theremin. Cindy Carter will demonstrate a theremin and allow you to try your hand at making music with this quirky instrument.
