End Time: 4:30 PM
It’s a party! You are invited to join the Library Board of Trustees and staff to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Carol Stream Public Library on Saturday, October 6.
The Board of Trustees has planned a day filled with exciting activities, great food and amazing prizes. You can visit activity stations throughout the building featuring the Adler Planetarium balloon rocket, Museum of Science and Industry hands-on demos, SciTech Museum static electricity show, DuPage Animal Control pet adoption, and the SCARCE energy bike. The Cosley Zoo Mascot will join us, and the Carol Stream Fire Department will have a fire truck stationed in our parking lot.
In addition, we will have food! West Suburban Bank is providing fresh popcorn throughout the day, and Culver’s will be here dishing out frozen custard from 1 – 3 p.m.
Last, but not least, the Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Library are sponsoring a drawing for a new Kindle Touch, each hour on the half hour. Every Carol Stream cardholder checking out materials at the Circulation Desk between September 1 and October 6 will receive one entry form per day. So visit the Library, checkout some materials, and enter the drawings for one of eight Kindles which will be given away. You do not have to be present to win. Limit one Kindle per cardholder.
