Coming Soon: Our Fall 2012 Events
Hope you have been able to take advantage of some of our programs and events this summer! We are now proud to announce the line-up for Fall 2012. Our adult programs this time will include special features such as a collaboration with High School District 128 that will bring a series of outstanding chefs to our community. Our popular Authors Out Loud series kicks off on September 13th with lunch with Julia Child biographer Bob Spitz (Dearie) at noon at the Sullivan Center in Vernon Hills. As usual, we will offer an extensive slate of computer classes. And this time our genealogy offerings will also include some computer classes, as well as individual research time in the computer lab. The first day to sign up for computer classes is Saturday, September 9. See the entire line-up of adult programs at Cook Park and Aspen, including business and job-hunting, Authors Out Loud, genealogy and computer classes.
Teen programs will include a “Zombies Attack” After Hours event at Cook Park, the return of the Mother-Daughter Book Club, and a bigger and better than ever Epic Quest for Teen Read Week.
Kids this fall will be able to participate in a “Reading is Delicious” fall book club with many tasty events. Other book clubs include one for middle schoolers and one just for guys. Principals from local schools will visit to read aloud, storytimes and crafts will be available, and the Design a Bookmark contest will be back. Special events include a Star Wars Read Day and the always exciting Touch the Trucks. There will be programs just for Tweens, who are also welcome to attend the Homework Café. We will also host a preschool and childcare fair, as well as programs for adults on early literacy, brain development and homework help. See the entire line-up.
