Thanks to all our Summer Reading Club Donors!

Summer Reading Clubs are in full swing with hundreds of readers of all ages participating. If you haven't signed up, we'd like to encourage you to do so - there are gifts for signing up and reading, plus free video coupons and weekly raffle drawings for the adults and great prizes for the kids!  We want to say a heartfelt thanks to the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library for underwriting our clubs for children, young adults and adults. Their support helps make these programs so successful.

We would also like to thank the Glencoe organizations and merchants who have made generous donations in support of Summer Reading Clubs.

In the event of rain, screenings will occur in the council chamber in Village Hall.
