Big Library Read

Big Library Read is back! We’re excited to announce that the latest Big Library Read is now live, offering millions of users around the globe the opportunity to join the largest global book club in the world. For the next two weeks Shakespeare Saved my Life by Laura Bates will be available to borrow without any wait lists or holds. From March 17th through the 31st users from 20,000 libraries can read Dr. Bate’s story of teaching Shakespeare in a supermax solitary confinement prison and how she formed a lasting friendship with a convicted murderer that saved more than one life.

Creative Corner

Creative Corner
Our Creative Corner is dedicated to giving YOU, our community, the ability to actively participate in Library happenings without really having to attend a program.  The month of April  will be in honor of Autism Awareness. Think of your friends or loved ones that are autistic. Honor them by writing their first name on the blue paper puzzle piece and putting it up on our glass wall.  Each person that honors someone on the autism spectrum may take a blue puzzle piece pin graciously made and donated by The CTF Illinois Advocacy Center.
