Come into the library during school Spring Break and enjoy some activities. Tuesday, March 24 is our Crafternoon. Make a fun spring decoration. There are two sessions: 1:30 pm and 6:30 pm. This is open to all kids and does not require a library card. Please register at the circulation desk for the session you will attend, or call the library at 815-943-4671 to sign up.
On Thursday, March 26 we will open our meeting room for a Board Game Bonanza. Stop in and play some of the games we will have set up from 1:30 to 3:00 pm. Open to all ages, adults too. No registration required.
Diorama time again! Assemble your cast of candy PEEPS to re-create a scene from a favorite book! Those sweet little blobs of sugar are perfect actors. Google "Peep dioramas" and get some ideas for entering the library display and contest. For all ages and adults, you can pick up entry forms now at the library and put those cute little PEEPS to work at something other than creating cavities. Entries must be at the library by Monday, March 30 and will be displayed as they arrive before that date. Winners and the "PEEP-le's Choice" will be announced on April 2.
