Concert series resumes

The Pleasure of Your Company concert series, sponsored by Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library (SRFOL), opens the new season with Duo Nova on Sunday, Sept. 17, at 2:30 p.m.

Duo Nova, comprised of Yewon Lee and Hyun Jeong Ahn, will perform piano four-hands works by Mozart, Schubert, Kapustin and other composers in the intimate setting of the library’s Community Room. 

The opening concert has traditionally featured the library’s Schimmel piano, which was purchased by the Friends of the Library soon after the library first opened with the help of generous donations from community members. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear this fine instrument at its best during this program.

There is no charge for the concert, although donations are appreciated. An optional $5 per person donation is suggested.

The Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library also welcome concert supporters who are interested in helping continue to bring professional musicians to Scripps Ranch audiences. Donors of $35 or more will be recognized in the monthly printed concert programs. Consider sponsoring a concert for a donation of $500. 

The complete schedule of monthly concerts is available at srfol.org/music.htm.

The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library is located at 10301 Scripps Lake Drive near the entrance to Miramar Lake. Overflow parking is available on Meanley Drive off Scripps Ranch Boulevard (at the traffic light opposite Scripps Ranch High School’s stadium).

Celebrate library’s 30th birthday!

The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library, which first opened its doors in 1993, is now 30 years old.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 30, when Scripps Ranch Friends of the Library will host a communitywide celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Everyone is invited to join the festivities.

There will be fun, educational and entertaining activities for children, teens, and adults. Be among the first to check out some exciting new programs and equipment in the maker space at the library.

The celebration will continue on Saturday, Oct. 14, with a fun, early evening informal adult event with food, drink and a live band for dancing and listening.
