Experience the music of the 1960s British Invasion along with various American artists, as CARNABY ST. breathes new life into songs that are fondly remembered as the cornerstones for popular music’s favorite era.
While covering hits from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Moody Blues, The Who, The Dave Clark Five, The Bee Gees, The Hollies, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, The Monkees, The Byrds and even a few One-hit-Wonders, CARNABY ST. is living proof that the music from the 1960’s is timeless and continues to appeal to people of all ages.
We’re happy to introduce a new program – Thank You Neighbor. This program celebrates Franklin Township’s everyday heroes, and we need your help!
Celebrate Franklin Township, and the people who make it a great place to live, by honoring the kind things we do for each other every day.
Through September 11th, the Franklin Township Public Library encourages all residents to recognize their good neighbors by submitting a Thank You, Neighbor form. Franklin Township Public Library will invite all good neighbors, and the people who recognized them, to a celebration at the Library featuring entertainment and refreshments on September 20th.
Pick up a recognition form at any service desk or on the FTPL website – simply click the red “Thank You Neighbor” button in the header next to our logo.
Please hand your completed Thank You Neighbor forms to any service desk. Please participate and nominate your fantastic neighbors!
