In 1963, George Harrison was the first Beatle to visit America. Filmmaker, Bob Bartel, creator of the documentary "George Harrison: A Beatle in Benton, Illinois" takes attendees on a journey through Harrison's time in Illinois, just five months before George's band became a household name in America. This summer, the library celebrates the FabFour with all things Beatles.
