Your Library in the News
#CityHallSelfie Day on August 15, 2022 was a huge success – people from across the world took a minute to snap a selfie in front of their local government building. Lake Forest Library took the "Best Library" award.
Celebrating its 10th year, Lake Forest Reads–a program presented by Lake Forest Library and community partners–will read about Rosalind Franklin in the novel "Her Hidden Genius," the namesake of nearby Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science.
"Every year we strive to choose a title for Lake Forest Reads that resonates with our community, that is well written, and offers an opportunity to partner with other local organizations," says Kate Buckardt, Head of Adult Services at Lake Forest Library.
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.
