Lives Change @ Your Library
Celebrate National Library Week April 13-19
First celebrated in 1958, National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. The Library offers valuable resources that change people’s lives every day, including language learning resources, public computer access, databases for job searches and homework help. During National Library Week, stop by the Library for a sweet treat and tell us how the Library has changed your life. Help change someone’s life by participating in the Community Blood Drive or in one of the Library’s year-round activities.
Community Blood Drive at Your Library
In conjunction with the Heartland Blood Centers, the Library will be hosting a blood drive on Wednesday, April 16 from 3:30 – 7:30 p.m. A mobile coach will be located at the lower level parking lot of the Library. Register online at http://bit.ly/donatewpld. Simply create an account, register and check in at the registration table, located in our lower level lobby on the day of the blood drive. Photo ID required. Walk-ins welcome. Refreshments will be provided. Can’t donate? We are looking for registration table volunteers; for more information contact Patty Lakoma at 630-393-1171 x102. Donate Blood: It’s safe, it’s simple…it saves lives!
Self-Check is Here!
Our new self-checkout station is now available near the upper-level entrance. Self-check offers a quick, private, self-service option; however, staff is always available to those who prefer personal service or need assistance.
Teen Space Now Open
The Library’s new teen space features comfortable seating and easy access to the newest books for young adults. Set just inside the Library’s main entrance, this space is available for the teens’ exclusive use anytime school is not in session. (Others can enjoy the space before 2 p.m. on school days.)
State and federal tax forms are easily accessible through agency websites. Tax forms are available online at www.irs.gov (federal) and www.revenue.state.il.us (state). Online forms may be accessed at the Library and printed in black & white for 10¢ per page.
