Lyric Opera of Chicago
2012-2013 Season Materials

Audiovisual materials for operas performed during the current Lyric Opera of Chicago season are available to borrow from the Library. Materials include compact discs, DVDs, and librettos. They are on display during the Lyric season on the first floor of the Library near the Movies, Music and More Desk. As Lyric Opera materials are in demand during the season, there is a limit of three Lyric Opera items per patron. Check the links below or visit the Library's online catalog to determine availability of Lyric Opera materials. They may be reserved.

For more information about the season, visit the Lyric Opera of Chicago website. Lyric Opera dicussions will not be held at Skokie Public Library this year. However, there will be discussions at other libraries in the Chicago area.
