Last weekend was a typical weekend in DeKalb– too much to do– Sycamore Film Festival showing our own Wired documentary about deKalb, Fiesta downtown, NIU playing Army plus lots of other fall activities. start planning now for the month of October– Big Read month. Adventures of Tom Sawyer, one of “lighter” of Mark Twain’s descriptions of America. We will start on September 30 with a fence painting, of course. The focus of the month will be Why Read Mark Twain? We hope to see lots of the community at our events. Dee


Friends of the Library

09 Sep

The Friends of the Library collect books all year long and have a sale every other month. The proceeds support our youth summer reading programs. When I arrived this morning to work on a grant, there were several bags of books outside and some inside. Thank you so much for your support of the library.
I am working on a grant to increase usage and knowledge of broadband in our community. Very exciting project. Dee
