a spring celebration of art and music in true Paris Salon style. Join us as we welcome in the inspiration of this romantic city amongst our favorite reads. Katie's original oil paintings of Paris will adorn our space in a special exhibit for the evening. Enjoy a brief pre-concert talk as we learn more about Django Reinhardt and how he shaped the soundscape of the 1930s through his popular compositions that have now become the standards within Gypsy Jazz, alternatively called by the French name "Jazz Manouche." We will explore the creative process with accomplished musicians Jason Anick, Henry Acker and Greg Loughman who together form The Jason Anick Trio as they capture our imagination with their virtuoso playing. We will end the festivities with a taste of champagne πŸ₯‚ and strawberries πŸ“ as we delight in the sights and sounds of the evening. It will be our own 'Midnight in Paris' at Illume!

"The insatiable thirst for everything which lies beyond, and which life reveals, is the most living proof of our immortality."

    Curation and "Why Don't You Carry..."

    Illume is an experience for readers that's meant to showcase a careful selection of titles much in the same way an art gallery would display an exhibition.

    Titles are always shown "cover forward", and our inventory rotates to reflect current reader interests, shifting topics, and obscure finds. That said, we LOVE recommendations! Let us know what you're looking for, or what your favorite reads are. You may find them on the shelves soon!

    Whether you're a stacked to the brim library connoisseur, or a minimalist looking for a rare gem... we hope you'll enjoy our open space, find a new treasure, and experience the cozy reading couch🀍
