Wauconda Library earns high honor

Last week we brought you news that the Wauconda Area Public Library earned a great honor.
It was named "Library of the Year," by the North Suburban Library System, a consortium of 650 libraries in the north and northwest suburbs. That's no easy task, especially when you consider the libraries the Wauconda Library was judged against. There are many good libraries in the area.

We add our congratulations to the library staff and board for earning the wonderful honor.

If you are a taxpayer and don't use this outstanding resource -- it's your loss. Getting a library card is easy and the service is outstanding. The library had plenty of activities going on during National Library Card Sign Up Week. The staff is doing everything possible to attract people through the doors.

They figure once you are there, you'll find something that piques your interest. That's probably a pretty good bet. The library has everything from books to CDs. It even shows movies.

It is truly a great community resource.

If you live in the district, you should take advantage of it.

This award is proof that the Wauconda Library is giving residents exceptional value for their tax dollar.
