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.

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 Melissa Henderson. We apologize for any inconvenience.

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.
