Your Library in the News
Getting dressed in the morning is something we all do. Some people set their clothes out neatly pressed the night before; others grab whatever is clean from the top of the laundry basket.
Regardless of how you arrive at the outfit you’re wearing, few of us think about the lifespan of our clothes. The Lake Forest and Lake Bluff libraries hope to make consumers more aware of sustainable clothing with Read Between the Ravines.
In a time where public libraries are having to justify their relevance, the City of Lake Forest has a community of supporters working to ensure its legacy.
"The library plays such an important role in our city," says Diana Terlato, president of the Library Foundation Board. "It's the one place in our community where people of all ages gather. There's really no other place like it."
Lake Forest Library and Lake Bluff Public Library are proud to present their joint nonfiction reading program called Read Between the Ravines. This Two Communities, One Nonfiction Book program brings together Lake Forest and Lake Bluff with the purpose of enhancing nonfiction literacy and inspiring discussion around real-world issues.
This year's selected title is Reading with Patrick by Michelle Kuo.
LAKE FOREST, IL — Staff at Lake Forest Library have moved copies of several recently discontinued Dr. Seuss books behind a desk and limited them to in-building use to stop anyone from stealing them, according to the library director.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises, the business founded by the late author's family and which holds the copyright to his work, announced on his 120th birthday earlier this month it would stop selling or publishing new copies of six titles due to racist imagery.
For the first time in 45 years The Friends of Lake Forest Library is not able to host our Fall book sale due to health concerns resulting from the Covid 19 pandemic. Normally, at this time of year, we are busy packing up books, scheduling volunteers to work the sale, and finalizing all the details that running a sale of this magnitude involves. It's a time of year we all look forward to, and the energy and love for this event is tangible and very much missed this year. The board of directors of the Friends of Lake Forest Library miss interacting with each other on a regular basis at the Library, but what we miss most is interacting with our volunteers and patrons at an event that is near and dear to our hearts and to the heart of our community.
