Libraries Rock! - Adult Summer Reading Program

Reading Program

1959 Time Capsule
Libraries Rock!
June 9 - September 8, 2019

In honor of the Library's 60th anniversary, we're digging up the library's first time capsule to see what's inside. The year was 1959 ... Elk Grove Village was a new suburb, the U.S. and U.S.S.R. were in a race for space, and Hawaii became our 50th state.

Read five (5) books from categories relating to life and the world in 1959 ... and discover that libraries rocked then and still do.

Stop by the Adult Services Reference Desk to sign up for the summer reading program starting Sunday, June 9 at 1-5pm.
