Free summer concerts held at Roachdale Christian Church

With generous funding through the Putnam County Community Foundation, the Roachdale Public Library is presenting a community wide concert series this summer in conjunction with our Libraries Rock! Summer Reading session.

Part of our mission at the Roachdale Public Library is to provide programs and outreach to the Roachdale community. Many of the performers are community members themselves.

All community concerts are free, indoors, and air conditioned. In order to provide a temperature controlled environment for our performers (and audience), an indoor venue was sought. The Roachdale Christian Church has generously offered their downstairs worship center for the community concerts. This space is handicap accessible and will provide some great acoustics for our performers.

All concerts, with the exception of the final concert held at the library, will be held at the Roachdale Christian Church. We invite you, your family, and friends to enjoy the summer with us!
