The Brainerd Community Center has launched a YouTube channel, BrainerdLibertyville, featuring a series of videos created by McLaren Photographic titled "Bricks and Mortar, Heart and Soul" exploring the historic Brainerd Building in Libertyville and focusing on the effort to restore and repurpose the building into a community center for the arts. The first of twelve segments are currently posted with a new video to be released each week. The goal of the videos is to educate residents about the history, current condition, and potential sustainability of the building as a LEED project. Local leaders and performers in theater, dance, choir, and music are featured discussing the need for local, affordable performance space. Local entrepreneurs discusses the potential for the building's role in creating small business opportunities and helping existing organizations to grow and create jobs. The videos were created to help educate residents in anticipation of a referendum to be fielded on the spring ballot of 2014 which will ask the Libertyville village residents to support the restoration and renovation of the building. More information can be found at www.SaveBrainerd.org. Upcoming special events will be posted on Facebook at Brainerd Community Center.
