Fall is here and I could not be happier!
October, November, and December are my favorite months of the year. The weather is crisp and cool and we have lots of great holidays to get together with our family and friends.
I have always considered fall to be the time to start anew, and in that vein I am happy to report that Studio 300 is now open again in its original home!
I invite you to take some time out of your day and stop by and see Studio 300. Whether you are a tech genius or just curious and looking to learn more, Studio 300 has something for you.
We are excited to offer programs in photography, music, video, design, animation and more. We have always knowledgeable staff on-hand to assist you in your projects.
Please join us on Sunday for a celebration of the re-opening of the space.
We will be serving delicious refreshments from 1 to 4 p.m. and tours will also be available during that time. Visit our website for more information about our re-opening.
In November, we will be hosting our second annual Toy Exchange. Please join us on Saturday, Nov. 16 for this great event.
The Toy Exchange is a great way to save money and recycle gently used toys. For every toy you donate, you will receive a voucher that will allow you to choose another toy. Multiple toys may be donated and you will receive the same number of toys in exchange.
All donations will be accepted from Nov. 9-15. Please visit our website for more information on this event.
We have also added a new way for you to return materials.
Our new book drop is installed at Ashbury’s on Boughton Road. It is available for material drop-off 24 hours a day. A big thanks to the Bolingbrook Park District for being our partner in this new book drop.
Don’t forget about our other book drop located at First Presbyterian Church, 180 N. Weber Road. Of course we are always happy to see you in the library but sometimes you are on the go and we want you to have a place that is easy and convenient for you to drop books and DVDs off.
