Bestselling author, award-winning musician headline fantastic summer program line up!

Summer Reading is just around the corner! Registration for the Reading program begins June 1. We have an amazing calendar of events for the whole family!

Elizabeth Berg will be at the Library on June 6 at 2pm. Ms. Berg is the New York Times bestselling author of many novels, including Dream When You're Feeling Blue, We Are All Welcome Here, The Year of Pleasures, The Art of Mending, Say When, True to Form, Never Change, and Open House, which was an Oprah's Book Club selection in 2000. Pre-registration is required.

Award-winning musician Jim Gill will perform his hand-clapping, foot-stomping, fun-for-the-whole-family concert on June 9 at 11am. Also an award-winning author, Jim combines reading and music as parents and kids read and sing along. Pre-registration is required.

Unfortunately, registration is very limited for these events since we don't have an auditorium to accommodate more residents. Pre-registration is required for nearly every program offered at the library due to space constraints and high demand. However, we don't let that stop us for presenting some fantastic programs for as many people as we can possibly fit!

Here's more of what's happening this summer:
Learn a new skill with our free computer classes on Word, Excel, or Publisher. Go green with our Green Village series, in cooperation with Conservation Plainfield. Join a book discussion group. Write the novel you've always dreamed of with the help of one of our writers groups. Bring your baby to lapsit storytime. Encourage your reluctant reader by reading to therapy dogs at Paws to Read. Find a job with the help of our Internet Job Searching class and visits by the Will County Work Force Services Mobile Learning Center. Put on a play with Drama Club. Learn about a new culture with Culture Club. And this lists is not even half of what is going on in the month of June alone...

Enjoy your summer with Plainfield Library!
