MEDINA – Lee-Whedon Memorial Library won’t be offering its Finally Fridays concert series this winter.

The library made the announcement today, citing concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic. The concerts are Friday evenings from early January to early March. The events typically attract about 200 people to the library.

The library was looking forward to offering the series for the 20th year.

“We waited as long as we could, hoping for months, that we would not have to make this sad announcement,” Lee-Whedon posted on its Facebook page. “Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to offer our Finally Fridays concert series next year. We will wait until 2022 when we can hopefully come together as a community and enjoy our local musicians once more.”
