What's Happening at the Library

Check out our video with Emily Johnson (Chamber of Commerce), and Michelle Krooswyk (Library Director) in a lively conversation discussing library updates.


National Novel Writing Month

November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) — a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.

Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel — or if you’re feeling rebellious, a memoir, a collection of short stories, or any other type of writing you’d like to try. (November is also the national month for lots of cool creative projects.)

Whatever you choose, New Lenox Library is here to support you. Visit our NaNoWriMo page for more information.


Ghouls & Golf a huge success!

We are so grateful that 1,100 of you came out for Ghouls & Golf on Sunday, October 29. That's about 500 more than last year. WOW! Here's Channel 6's video of the event:

We also thank all of our FABULOUS volunteers who came out Saturday evening to help us set up, and on Sunday to help with the set-up, event, and clean-up. We cannot thank you all enough; we cannot do this event without you. WE LOVE OUR VOLUNTEERS!
