I had the chance to spend the last 3 days in Springfield for an Illinois Library Association conference.  I visited Lincoln’s house, saw the law firm where he worked, passed by the church he attended, and much more!  If you have a chance, check out the great resources we have all about Abe.

During the month of October, the Wheaton Public Library community is reading The Hound of the Baskervilles.  Check out all the wonderful happenings centered around Sherlock Holmes on our homepage and brochure of events!  For younger readers, be sure to visit our Sherlock Holmes display in the Children’s Department!  We’ll also be showing a movie on October 13th to celebrate the detective!  Pick up your free tickets at the Children’s Desk today!
