You are here
Here in Urbana we love everything local: goat cheese, live music, handknitted mittens, coffee shops, artwork, bike co-ops, etc. If you make it locally this community will support it. The librarians here at Urbana Free Library want to give a special shout out to some of the local "gems" you can check out from our stacks.
Local Music Highlights:
The biennial Ellnora guitar festival has been bringing amazing guitar music to the area since 2009 (and as the “Wall to Wall guitar festival” since 2005). This year's festival continues that tradition with some of the world's most acclaimed guitarists coming to the Krannert Center September 5th-7th. The Urbana Free Library music collection includes recordings by many Ellnora artists across many genres. Want to hear more of your favorite Ellnora performers?
