Musicologists Hannah Grantham and Amanda Ekery will be at the library to tell you about the  Lomax Folk Project, which refers to John and Alan Lomax who pioneered recording folklore by traveling across the United States 150 years ago. The father-son duo recorded and interviewed artists like Leadbellky, Muddy Waters and Jean Ritchie.
