Winter Reading

Stop by to get your Winter Reading Log at the Youth Services desk
We have changed things up a bit this year for winter reading. PreK-5th grade will have the opportunity to read, visit museums, and attend programs to work towards completing their winter reading log. Each completed log will count as a raffle ticket to our Grand Prize Drawing which includes Barnes & Noble Gift Cards, Starbucks Gift Cards, 2 Tickets to the Penguin Encounter at Shedd Aquarium, and a One Year Family Pass to the DuPage Children's Museum. Teens, grades 6 & up will have the additional opportunities to enter their raffle with the completion of the reading log that include museum visits, volunteering, attending programs, and submitting a book review for our blog. 
Ask Youth Services Staff for more details! 
Winter Reading runs until March 4th!

5th Grade Visit

This week we hosted about 60 5th Graders from the local elementary school! The students learned more about the library building itself, how to find a book, and all about the upcoming programs and Winter Reading. Following this presentation, students listened to book talks, had a library tour, got a chance to learn more about cataloging, and enjoyed plenty of time to browse for books and start reading them.

This great opportunity allowed some students to get their own library card and provided nearly all students to get a few books, DVDs, and/or video games to enjoy over break.

We enjoyed having 5th Grade visit us and the chance to see some new faces!

It was a great site to see having the dome full of so many young readers!
