Cooper Memorial Library will host several programs in January, including the monthly Friends Opera Club, a Cooper Concert Series event, and an author visit and book talk.

The Friends of the Library Opera Club will present Macbeth at 1:45 p.m., Monday, Jan. 23 in Room 108. Attendees will watch and discuss the opera as part of this ongoing educational series.

As part of the Cooper Concert Series, the Library will host Dave DeLuca at 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023.

Attendees will travel back in time to the days when the Rat Pack ruled the night, with DeLuca’s one-man tribute to the swingin’ sounds of the iconic Las Vegas trio: Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra.

Then, also at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 26, author Lea Tran will present a book talk about her memoir, “I Did Not Miss the Boat.”

Tran will give an autobiographical discussion, including her experience as a Vietnamese Hoa refugee.

Her inspiring journey from oppressive traditions to self-discovery and liberation will captivate and educate readers.

All events are free and generously sponsored by the Friends of the Cooper Memorial Library. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
