Johnson City Public Library is rocking all summer

 Stories met songs Thursday at the Johnson City Public Library as local musicians brought literature to life for a concert through the library’s summer program. 

Singer-songwriters Zach Ross and Daniel Couper — who is also a social studies and English teacher at Jonesborough Middle School — took a dive into their favorite stories from Greek mythology to modern fantasy while framed by a view of downtown Johnson City that the library’s Buffalo room offers. 

“We’re really excited and doing a lot of music-related programming and we also want to raise awareness of local musicians and local artists,” librarian Lisa Krekelberg said. “People love music, all kinds of different genres, no matter where you’re from. It’s been a wonderful time.”

The concert is part of the library’s summer reading program, which for this season puts music in the spotlight. Other upcoming events include a series of escape rooms this weekend themed around music

The summer reading finale this year will be a block party in King Commons Park on July 19, a first for the library since the city finished work on the park earlier this year.
