A Great Day
@ Your Library

Wauconda Area Library
NSLS 2005 Library of the Year

Celebration & Expo

Saturday, September 24

1 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Rain or Shine

Loads of FREE FUN!
 Something for Everyone!


The library invites EVERYONE to join our “Library of the Year” celebration Saturday, September 24. Throughout the afternoon, starting at one o’clock, there will be loads of entertainment, refreshments, prizes, and fun for all ages. This is the library’s way of thanking the community for making it possible to achieve SO MUCH in recent years. So much, in fact, that the library was named “Library of the Year” earlier this year by the North Suburban Library System (NSLS), a consortium of 650 academic, public, school, and special libraries in north suburban Cook, Kane, Lake and McHenry Counties.

Come join the festivities -- rain or shine! 
The more the merrier!
