Winter Reading Update

Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Winter Reading Challenge.

7,729 books were read, exceeding our goal of 5000 books!

Thank you to Palatine Bank and Trust, and Warehouse Direct for partnering with the Library to each donate $1000 to Little City in Palatine, which provide services to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the area. The donation will be used to renovate the 16 CILA homes Little City has around the Palatine area. They will purchase paint, supplies, and other materials to provide the best environment possible for the individuals they serve.
