Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

December 10, 2010
Hello, all, hope your holiday season is going well.

Here at the library I've put up the little Christmas tree, and lights in the window, and I'm hoping my patrons and library friends will come in and check out the holiday books section - maybe you'll find some good ideas for gifts or entertaining.

We have another recent addition to our reference section! A full 20-volume set of "How it works - Science and Technology" was recently donated by the Lemont Public Library District. This is a lovely set, and should be very useful for both younger and older patrons. Very easy to understand, with nice short summary-type articles.

Hope to see you all over the holidays, and may you have a peaceful and happy season.

Come on in and check them out - many popular authors.

New Encyclopedia Set!

November 13, 2009
On Tuesday, Nov. 10, my lovely sometimes-assistant Jill and I drove to Menoka (just east of Joliet) to pick up a set of the Encyclopedia Britannica for our library.

This beautiful set was donated free of charge by the Menoka Public Library when they recently received a new set. Many thanks to Nancy Baker at Menoka for sifting through the many emails sent to her and deciding to let us have it - I guess I was the first to submit a request, so we got it.

Come in and look it over - the volumes are ...
