Director Molly Scanlan informed readers of the O’Fallon Weekly about Library events and activities. The next Friends of the Library book sale is something you don’t want to miss this weekend. Saturday, March 17, from 9 AM – 4 PM and Sunday, 1 PM – 5 PM the Friends of the Library volunteers will have a wide collection of books, DVDs, and CDs. You’ll find something for every age group and nearly every subject imaginable. All proceeds benefit the library as they provide materials and programs that help you and your family learn, grow, and enjoy life. If you can’t wait until the weekend, Molly reminds patrons that a smaller selection of books are always on sale on the shelves near the computer area adjacent to a painting is currently on display.
Coming up next week, the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs will present, IDVA Veteran’s Outreach Evening, and provide information about veteran benefits for military vets and their families. Meet in the large meeting room, Wednesday, March 21, 2018 – 6:00 PM.
Children five years and older are invited to explore ideas of justice and social responsibility through fun games and activities. Annetta Works-Salley, community social activist, will facilitate the program and children will hear a reading of Dr. Artika Tyner’s book, Justice Makes a Difference, next Saturday, March 24, at 10:30.
While you’re here be sure and check out our special collection on CivilRights and Social Justice. This wide range of titles is in the Marketplace and there’s something to interest every young reader.
If it’s been a minute since you’ve visited the Library, Molly advises drivers and pedestrians to be aware of the new access to the parking lot. The road through the Lincoln Park Senior Villas is now open on the south side of the GCS Credit Union and it leads behind the Credit Union and joins Civic Plaza at the Library. A sign on Lincoln marks the entrance between the Credit Union and the new apartments. Residents will start moving in this month and Molly reminds us to look both left and right when exiting the Library parking lot and watch for pedestrians and increased traffic.
The O’Fallon Public Library has such a wide variety of activities for people of all ages, check out our online calendar to make sure you don’t miss out.
Also, we give a big shout-out to the O’Fallon Weekly for supporting the library and the community. Catch the next edition online and on newsstands each Wednesday.
