This week (and every week this summer) we have tons of great programs both at the main library and the Franklin Park branch!

In the Children’s department we have puppet shows (every Monday at 2:30 PM this summer), learn to play chess (every Monday at 6:30 pm this summer), legos, a magic show, scrapbooking, the Muppets from Space movie, and much more!  Our Children’s department has two programs a day, every day, Monday – Friday throughout the summer.  Come enjoy!

Young Adults aren’t left out.  This week “what’s an abacus?” and “young adult book bingo” are happening with great activities and prizes! The YA Yarn Club at the Franklin Park branch also starts this week, so break out the knitting and crochet!

Our adults have chess club, bobbin lacemaking, the Summer Concert series, free movies (Lone Survivor and The Grand Budapest Hotel for July), computer classes on Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint, and more this month!
