RPL Summer Concert Series GafferBy CALVIN PYNN

The library has hosted shows in the past, and this isn’t the first time they’ve attempted a summer concert series, however, this year’s series will the first at the Radford Public Library since 2012. The program was organized by library employee Courtney Amos who was tasked by her supervisor to create an event to get the patrons more involved and interested in the library.
