Brrr, is it cold outside!
On Friday, Jan. 24, Lisle Library District invites you escape the cold and come into the warmth of the library for our Winter Open House – Luau Style. After the calm of the holiday season, cabin fever will get to the best of us, so mix it up a bit at this informative, fun and educational event to welcome in a New Year of Library services.
Starting at 6 p.m., we will have a Children’s Storytime followed by a Polynesian dance performance from 6:15 to 6:45 p.m.
Steel Pots and Pans will begin a rousing performance at 7 p.m., but don’t miss our limbo and crazy Hawaiian shirt contests throughout the night for the chance to win fun prizes. I am also pleased to host two tours of the library for anyone interested in the behind the scenes look at our facility.
Programs are an important part of strong library experiences, and during our last fiscal year 18,500 people visited us for events. These range from film and book discussion groups to children’s storytimes, literacy supporting events, technology and computer training, cultural events and music performances.
As part of our mission and values to provide for the diverse interests of a varied community, we offer an array of activities designed to increase the awareness and use of Library resources.
We also provide space for other local organizations to host meetings and their own programming. We also visit schools and institutions for outreach programming. We have a busy 2014 in store for you and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.
There’s no need to register for our Winter Open House, but do come with warm, sunny thoughts and maybe that festive Hawaiian shirt hiding in the back of your closet.
Join us for light refreshments and entertainment, and find out all the Library has to offer during our event held from 6 to 8 p.m. You can visit www.lislelibrary.org any time for further details about our events.
We look forward to having you join us.
Shannon Halikias is the Director of the Lisle Library District.
