Library Closing for Staff Training

On Friday, October 1, the Glencoe Public Library will be closed for staff training.  We will reopen Saturday, October 2.  We apologize for any inconvenience and remind you to visit us online!



New Excerpts Available Online

The September issue of the library newsletter Excerpts is now online.  It includes information on upcoming  financial programs, informative programs for parents and caregivers, and kids' book groups.  You'll also learn a new way to "check out" music from your computer, the dates of our next book sale and classical music concert and much much more!  Glencoe residents will be receiving a print copy of Excerpts in the mail sometime in the next week, but in the meantime you can access it online as a pdf.



Labor Day Closing and Sunday Hours

The library will be closed in recognition of Labor Day on Monday, September 6.  Sunday hours will resume the following Sunday, September 12 and will continue until next summer.  Our hours on Sundays are 1-5.



Carpeting Project

Between August 30 and September 4 we will be removing and replacing the 15-year-old carpet in the children's department with new carpeting.  Unfortunately, this means that access to the second floor will be restricted for this period.  The children's department staff and a small selection of materials will be available in the Hammond Room.  Please feel free to send any questions related to this project to This email address is being protected from spambots.

From Page to Stage Kickoff

We've got another exciting edition of From Page to Stage coming up as Writers’ Theatre stages the musical She Loves Me, a romantic comedy with music by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick who also collaborated on Fiddler on the Roof.  The book was written by Joe Masterhoff who is best known for writing the book for Cabaret.  The play doesn't open until September 14, 2010, but our kickoff event will happen on Tuesday, August 24th, on the second floor of Writer's Theatre at 325 Tudor Court (please note that the date given in the June Excerpts was incorrect).  At the From Page to Stage kick-off event, associate artistic director Stuart Carden will discuss how this musical was selected and produced.  Stay after the discussion to enjoy coffee and dessert in celebration of this annual literary event. Other From Page to Stage programs related to this play will be presented at neighboring public libraries through September 27.   You can get information about all From Page to Stage programs at the Writers Theatre website.



August Board Meeting Cancelled

The library board meeting scheduled for Wednesday, August 18th has been cancelled.  The next meeting will be September 15th.  All meetings are scheduled for the third Wendesday of the month at 7:30 in the library's Hammond Room.  Members of the public are invited to attend.  You can get more information, including dates, agendas and board members, here.



Pet Parade Date Changed to Sat. August 7th

Please note that the date of our popular Pet Parade has changed from the date listed in Excerpts.  Due to the massive crowds expected in Glencoe for the Grand Prix, we are now going have the Pet Parade on SATURDAY AUGUST 7 at 2:00. Whether you have a pup, a cat, a frog, or a webkinz, you can bring your favorite pet - real or imaginary - to the annual pet parade. Children ages 4 and older with their pet are invited to participate; kids younger than 8 must be with an adult. All pets must have had their shots and be on a leash or in a crate/box.  Registration is required.  Event cancelled in case of rain or other inclement weather.
