Time is Running Out on Summer Reading...

It's been a crazy summer, with flooded basements, power outages, downed trees and generally extreme weather. One thing has remained consistent - our Summer Reading Program has been a hit! Time is running out though. You've only got until September 3rd to finish reading and pick up your final prize: a beautiful book bag! And even though you've finished your six books you shouldn't stop recording books that you read, because each book beyond the initial six will get you an extra free movie rental per book! Thanks to everyone who has participated and don't forget to get your books read!

On Saturday, August 13 from 2pm – 3pm we will be hosting our popular annual Pet Parade! Bring your favorite pet - real or imaginary - to Wyman Green and join your neighbors in the fun. 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.



Special Film Event!

We will be hosting a special film screening on Monday, August 8th at 7:00 p.m. The Alumni Chapter, a film starring local actor Scott Javore - son of the Glencoe architect of the same name - is an independent feature film best described by its director Matt Helderman as a St. Elmo's Fire for the 21st century . The film, which debuted in February 2011, is a growing-up story about four college graduates coming to terms with a strapped economy and unraveling friendships. The film's running time is 72 minutes and is not rated. It will be playing at the Women's Library Club, 325 Tudor Ct.
