The West Deptford Library has been offering free public programs since its opening in 1988. There has been a diversity of musical events for all ages, including bagpipes, a local children’s choir, klezmer, jazz, a brass quartet, a Broadway revue, songwriters in the round, a big band, folk music, Latin guitar, Celtic music, and a chamber choir. The Library even offers rehearsal space to The SilverTones, a local big band.
The New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music exhibit is the inspiration for the FY11 Special Arts Project, And the Beat Goes On: Experience the Music, a Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission grant awarded to the West Deptford Free Public Library for 2011. This will be a part of an extended celebration for all ages throughout the year.
