Ellie Dufresne Concert - Dare to Be
Sunday, March 12th, 2017 - 2:00pm at IRC Main Library


Ellie Dufresne, Canadian singer, songwriter, recording artist, is no stranger to Vero Beach. In her many winters spent in our community, she has immersed herself singing with school children, elders, cancer survivors, Alzheimer and Hospice patients. In the past three years, she has enjoyed her volunteer time at Habitat for Humanity's Restore, by playing her many tunes on old pianos for staff and visitors.

Ellie is passionate about her music which stems from a tradition that inspires all generations. Her themes draw from both a love of nature and many aspects of everyday living. She dares to be and through her stories and songs, shares insight on love, loss, honor, faith, purpose, and a desire for peace. Through a performance, she seeks to create a homespun rapport with her audience by inviting them to join her in song, harmony or simply by clapping through her refrains. The public is welcome to enjoy Ellie’s Library Concert Sunday, March 12, 2017 at 2pm. The Main Library is located at 1600 21st Street, Vero Beach.

For more informatino please contact Marla: 772-770-5060 x 4121.

Virtual Reality Demos featuring the HTC Vive

Tuesday, March 28th - North IRC Library
Wednesday, April 26th - Brackett Library

Demos scheduled from 3:00pm to 7:20pm (20 minutes each)


Ever wanted to climb a mountain, hang out on a reef full of fish or be ninja all without ever leaving the library? Now you can with the library's new virtual reality system.

Third grade through college age students only are being given this special opportunity to register for a 20 minute session to experience the Vive VR System. Pre-registration is required and you will be assigned a specific play-time. Please arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to the scheduled time or your session will be forfeited. Spectators are welcome, but pre-registration is REQUIRED to play.


To register, contact Patti Fuchs at pfuchs@irclibrary.org or call 772-770-5060 x4132. In an effort to give everyone a chance at this new experience we will be giving preference to people who haven't gotten to try VR before when scheduling the demos.

Why VR? It's new, it's unique and VR is something that's difficult for people to experience at home (for now). Why Vive? Most people have the biggest reaction when they are able to move around, touch and interact with the virtual world in a natural way.
