The library is having a dressed up pumpkin display again this year. You can use Pinterest or other Internet sites for ideas. Do not carve the pumpkin but you decorate with paint or paper or whatever else to make your pumpkin look like a storybook character. Here are a few pictures from last year....
No one has signed up for the Computer Crimes Presentation given by Illinois State Trooper, Officer Matt Frizzell on Tuesday, October 29th at 6:30 pm. Officer Frizzell will cover computer scams and viruses.
Please call us at 527-4360 or stop by the library to register if you are planning on coming. If no one registers, we will cancel the class so that Office Frizzell will not have to make the trip here for an audience of zero.
Bring a dessert to share. A small dessert since there aren't too many of us. We meet at the library at 3 pm to talk about cooking and food. Oh, and we eat stuff, too! Yummmm!
We had a Boss's Day luncheon for Carla today. All the employees agree that we are lucky to have such a wonderful boss!
Have you ever read a book and wished you could be part of the story? I had that feeling with this book that,"Oh, gosh I wish I was there" kind of feeling. If you love animals, I think you will enjoy this book. You can order this through the RSACAT or call us and ask us to order it, if you are interested.
Bill Kemp of the McLean County Museum of History will be at the El Paso District Library to talk about The Unconquerable Kickapoo on Thursday, November 7th at 6:30 pm.
The Kickapoo, a fiercely independent people, inhabited this stretch of Central Illinois when the first Euro-American settlers arrived in the early 1820s. This talk will include rare 1906 photographs of the Kickapoo living in Brown County, Kansas. These photographs were commissioned by Milo Custer, an early curator of the McLean County Historical Society.
We have had Mr. Kemp here before several times and he is very knowledgeable about the history of McLean County and his presentations are very well done.
Please register so that we can have an idea of the number of people who will be attending. You can register by calling 527-4360 or stop by the library in person.

Last Friday we moved the Audiobooks to where the Largeprint was shelved. We had to shift all the Adult Nonfiction to put the Largeprint following the Western section. It took about 5 hours and several volunteers but we did get it done. So, if you come in and can't find something, remember that it may have moved. You can always ask the librarians for help, too!
The program last Thursday on the Parklands was very fun and informative. Jessica Chambers, the presenter was so enthusiastic, it was very catching. She talked about her favorite Parklands spots and some of the special plants and wildlife you may see in those places. The audience really enjoyed her stories! The Parklands could use new members to volunteer. She encouraged the audience to visit one of their sites with a friend and help to spread the word about the good work that they are doing to restore the different types of environments along the Mackinaw River.
