Des Plaines Public Library has been named a 4-Star Library by Library Journal.
Just sixteen Illinois libraries were awarded 3-Star, 4-Star, or 5-Star designations this year. 262 libraries were awarded Star rankings nationwide.
5,608 public libraries nationwide qualified to be rated in the LJ Index.
This week we bid a fond farewell to The Great DPPL Bake-Along. Since we began the project back in April, we've baked (and eaten) nearly two dozen batches of literary treats and found new ways to experience our favorite books. Thank you for coming along!
Winter Reading for adults begins Friday January 8th and continues through February 28th.
Read Books, Answer Trivia Questions and Enter for a chance to win fabulous prizes. There are two contests this year; Reading and Trivia.
Submit an entry for each book you read between January 8th and February 28th. Prizes will be drawn and the winners notified during the first week of March
A new weekly trivia question will be posted each week on Sunday. Answer the question correctly and you could win a gift card to a local restaurant. We will draw a new winner each week.
How to Enter:
- Ballot Boxes are at the library. They will be at the carryout desk while the library is closed if the rest of the building is closed to the public or at the 3rd floor desk when service resumes.
- Email your answer to us at Winter@DPPL.org
- Send us a direct message with your answer in facebook or instagram. The trivia questions will be posted to facebook and instagram each week as well. Just submit your name, email, phone with your answer (which is either the answer to the trivia question or the title/author of the book you read).
