Music Committee

What is the Music Committee?

The Music Committee of the Friends of the Weston Public Library oversees the presentation of an annual concert series in the Library’s Community Room. The Committee’s mission is “to promote the appreciation and love of music and to expand the cultural opportunities available in Weston by enabling the Library to present a variety of musical programs which are free and open to the public.”  

If you would like to help bring us music to the library by volunteering with the Music Committee, please click here.
