Enjoy the romantic sounds of 1920s jazz with a special Valentine's Day concert on Friday, Feb. 14, in the Bradbury Room of the Waukegan Public Library. The West End Jazz Band takes the stage at 1 p.m., followed at 2:30 p.m. by a special showing of the 1926 romantic silent film "Don Juan," starring John Barrymore. It holds the record for the most kisses in film history, with Don Juan planting 191 kisses on various females, an average of one every 53 seconds. Drinks and baked goods will be available for purchase by the Friends of the Waukegan Public Library, and popcorn will be served during the film. To listen to a clip of the West End Jazz Band, visit www.waukeganpl.org. For questions about library concerts, call Rena Morrow, Marketing and Exhibits Manager, at (847) 623-2041, ext. 231.
