On Sunday, May 19 from 4:00 to 5:30, all Glencoe residents are invited to join Glencoe Public Library's board of trustees for a special reception for outgoing executive director Peggy Hamil. This is Glencoe's opportunity to mark Peggy's retirement and recall her contributions to the Glencoe community, which she has served since 1994. We will miss you, Peggy!
Please note that the library will close at 3:30 to set up for the party and will reopen at 4:00. Regular library services will not be available during the party.

In the face of unbearable conditions, many people still have an astonishing urge to create. Our Rising From the Ashes program on Tuesday May 7th at 7:30pm will explore human creativity in the shadow of cruelty, including examples of art produced in the Nazi death camps, African-American spirituals, and artistic responses to the Cambodian genocide. The program will be presented by Glencoe resident Barbara Javore, who has a Ph.D in religious education from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and is director of children’s and youth ministry at North Shore United Methodist Church.

Did you know that nearly 8000 people attended library programs in our last fiscal year that ended on February 28th? We also loaned over 210,000 books, DVDs and CDs, and answered over 45,000 reference questions (5.2 per resident). These facts and more can be found in our newly published Annual Report, available online or in print at the library. Thanks to everyone for making it a busy year!
