Construction and Groundbreaking

01 Aug

The groundbreaking ceremony was a moment of history for the DeKalb Public Library. We thank our speakers, our guests and all who helped.
The next three weeks will be preparing for the foundation and the new but temporary entrance to the children’s room.

Book Expo

22 May

Next week I will be attending Book Expo, the annual publishers’ conference which is held in New York City. Many issues such as e-books and the policies of publishers towards libraries are on the docket as meeting subjects. I am posting a YouTube video from Mayor Daley who built more public libraries than any other mayor in the history of the United States. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1ShwxbiB2E
