We are celebrating National Poetry Month with a poetry contest of our own! Write an original poem (less than 100 words) about Harry Dumpty and submit it on or before April 30th. There will be three categories: adult, teen and children.
A winner will be chosen from each category on May 1st. Each winner will receive a personalized t-shirt with their poem on the back, a chocolate egg from The Confectionary and they will be able to read their award-winning poem during our groundbreaking event.
Please submit poems to Edith Craig via email at email@example.com, at the library or by fax 815-756-7837. Please include your name, age (so we can discern your category), email and/or phone number.
Infants through toddler-age children and their parents are invited to join Miss Marti on the dragon carpet for a morning of fun with stories and songs for little ones!
This week we will be reading about gardens!
We will decorate the pots and plant seeds. Watch them grow!
Be green and save green by making a plastic bottle piggy bank.

TAG: Making Libraries Work for Teens!
TAG is about local teens talking to librarians and helping to decide which books, programs, and services they need.
It's about making your voices heard and your choices matter.
Refreshments are provided--all you have to do is bring your ideas, energy, and enthusiasm!
