Green Holiday Tips

Money is tight, especially around the holidays.  There are many budget-friendly things you can do to be especially eco-festive this year!

    Tired of using the same decorations year after year?  Your neighbors probably are too!  Swap decorations for a whole new look without spending a dime.

    Make sure your outside lights are on a timer.

    Send your holiday greetings electronically.

    If you buy new lights this year, be sure to purchase LED lights.  Not only do they use significantly less electricity, they last longer!

Food for Fines!
December 1 - January 4

The Wauconda Area Library will be accepting donations for the Wauconda/Island Lake Food Pantry in lieu of library fines on overdue items from Monday, December 1 through Sunday, January 4, 2009. 

When you return your overdue items to the library, bring along some non-perishable items or canned goods to clear your fines on those items.  New winter clothing will also be accepted. 

This promotion does not include late video/DVD fines or previous fines on your record. Items donated should be comparable to the fines being waived.
