The library and University of Illinois Extension Office is teaming up to create a Graphic Novel club for ages 8+. This new club will take place on the 3rd Thursday of every month in the Aquarium Room of the library. Hang out, read graphic novels, discuss your favorite graphic novels and draw. Ages 8-12 will work with Miss Danielle and ages 13+ will work with Miss Maricela.
Things are looking bright in the library due to an Ameren grant, which allowed us to change out our florescent bulbs with energy efficient, LED light bulbs. The new lights are brighter and use half the watts—a great savings for the library! Thank you Ameren for contributing $2,790 towards our project.
