We are thrilled to bring you a series of four of Tim’s very special Monday Morning Music sessions. He will introduce music which he has enjoyed during Lockdown – and some Christmas music too. These sessions took place in the Studio Theatre, dlr LexIcon. If you would like further suggestions by Tim, see last year’s Darkness to Light booklet featuring Tim’s recommendations: https://libraries.dlrcoco.ie/events-and-news/library-news/darkness-light-recommended-listening-tim-thurston
dlr Libraries are enormously grateful for the many CD donations Tim Thurston has given to dlr LexIcon for all to borrow and enjoy.
