The Scene

The Scene

Join The Scene, a program just for those in grades 4-8, on Friday, December 6, from 4:30-5:30pm, to create your own video game-inspired artwork. Make an 8-bit fuse bead magnet for your locker or an ornament for your tree! Registration is required for this program. In November, the Sceners painted watercolor artwork that will soon be on display at the Library. The Scene is just one of several monthly programs for kids in grades 4-8. Looking for more great programs for your 4-8th grader? Check out calendar for more information on the following programs (grades listed in parentheses): Girls Rock Book Club (4-8), Guys Read (4-8), The Art Club (1-8), Science Club (3-6), and The Scene Remix (4-8). Lots of awesome activities and monthly programs await your older grade-schoolers at the library -- sign them up for a program today to see what we have to offer!

Come join us this coming WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4th!

Books and Wine

Looking for something relaxing to do before or after shopping? Come join this very informal **new** "PICK YOUR BOOK" Book discussion. That's right, just come and listen to others recommendations or share your own about any book at all! We will be meeting every FIRST Wednesday of the month at 6 pm at Gatto's Restaurant & Bar, 1938 East Lincoln Highway, New Lenox (except January, 2014, when we will meet the second Wednesday, January 8, due to the New Year's Holiday). Pretty simple, really, and, hopefully, a fun way to learn about new and interesting books! Look for the NEW LENOX PUBLIC LIBRARY table! You can sign up online or just pop in! See you there!
