Enjoy jazz on a summer evening on the outdoor stage behind the Sequim Branch Library. There is nothing like watching live music while lying on a blanket in the grass, gazing at the Olympic mountains in the background, chatting with friends, and enjoying the feeling of being part of a small town community.

In the event of rain or inclement weather, concerts will be held inside the Library.
