Thank You to Our Special Guests at Summer Reading on the Road


For the second year, we took summer reading on the road, this time to Oster-Oakview and Bentley schools to sign up children for the summer reading program and hand out prizes. In June, some friends from the New Lenox Fire Protection District and their search-and-rescue bloodhound Red joined us to discuss Red's training, abilities, and skills. And in July, Dr. Ubatuba and her staff from the Animal Clinic joined us with their dog Sophie to talk about animal care and what it's like to be a veterinarian, as well as to show various animal X-rays. Thanks to all who came out in June and July to visit with us and our special guests!

Summer Reading Ends Saturday


The last day to turn in any summer reading logs is Sat., July 26 - that's this weekend. Remember to bring your youth reading logs to the Library to turn in any raffle tickets and claim prizes you may have earned. And the best part of finishing the youth summer reading program is that you'll earn a book of your very own to keep as well as an invitation to our finale party in August. The adult and teen summer reading program also ends this weekend. Be sure to bring in your completed logs to earn your prizes!
