The Remix: Life-Size Word on the Street

Remix Event

Our Remix tweens (grades 4-8) had a blast playing a life-size version of Word on the Street at the Library on Thu., Jan. 22. Two teams went head-to-head and won one game each. A giant THANK YOU goes out to our friends at Beggar's Pizza of New Lenox for donating the large pizza boxes that made this program possible.

Did you know the Library offers many programs for kids, tweens, and teens including Teen and Tween Advisory Groups, movie nights, Art Club, The Scene, The Remix, Guys Read, Girls Rock Book Club, Teen Night, ACT Practice Tests, and [Insert Cool Title Here] (a program just for grades 7-8)? We even have programs for adults and seniors. Check out our online program guide to see all the programs the Library has to offer including these and others not mentioned here. Or stop by the Library to say hello and pick up a printed program guide today.

Celebrate American Heart Month

Little Hats, Big Hearts
Patterns available in Adult Services
Collecting hats from January 1–15

Celebrate American Heart Month by knitting or crocheting red hats for all babies born in February at participating hospitals. We’re raising awareness of heart disease, the number one killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country. Sample patterns for baby hats can be found in a binder at the Reference Desk.
