I hope everyone is enjoying their summer, especially now that Illinois has entered Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois recovery plan. We were sad that we had to skip having our summer reading kick-off block party again this year, but we are looking at possibly having an end-of-summer celebration of some kind instead. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to the upcoming One Book One Community reading of Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu. I have my copy checked out and will be reading along with everyone else participating. We hope to be launching a new service for you very soon where you will be able to renew your Illinois license plates right here at the Library. Stay tuned for our announcement when it is up and available. I will also be leading another Couch-to-5K session this year, so if you are interested in running the Stickney-Forest View Lions Club Run for Hope 5K be sure to sign up.Have a safe and fun Independence Day.
