FAMILY READING NIGHT
Family Reading Night (sponsored by Jesse White, Secretary of State, and the Illinois Center for Book) is an annual event for families to spend time reading together. This year's event is on November 17th.
Stop by Youth Services between November 1st and 17th to pick up supplies to make your Family Reading Night special (book bag, popcorn, hot chocolate and a book to share). Then, on Nov. 17th, take time to read together as a family.
FIRST LINE FRIDAY: THE NEST
"As the rest of the guests wandered the desk of the beach club under an early-evening midsummer sky, taking pinched, appraising sips of their cocktails to gauge if the bartenders were using the top-shelf and balancing tiny crab cakes on paper napkins while saying appropriate things about how they'd really lucked out..."
- The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
