It's Finale time! My favorite event of the year, our Summer Reading Grand Finale is tomorrow, Saturday, August 1, from 1-4pm on the lawns behind the Library and Village parking lots.
Come celebrate the end of Summer Reading with fun activities for everyone. Cool down
under the tent and meet your fellow readers, build your own Culver’s sundae, snack on popcorn and snow cones, play your favorite fun fair games for prizes, listen
to live music from the Andes region of Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador performed by the
Sisai Trio, hop through the tiger moon jump, race against the clock at the pit stop challenge, and test your strength and endurance with the bungee run. Support the Friends of the Library and Plainfield Library Foundation's fundraiser with a $5 donation to receive a free "We Support the Plainfield Library" window cling. Bottled water and reusable bags will also be available for purchase from the Friends/Foundation.
Look for Library staff and volunteers to help direct you to parking. Don't forget to try the parking lot on Route 59 or the lot at the former First Midwest building if the Illinois Street and Library lots are full! Maps of the Grand Finale events will be posted at the entrances and throughout the event grounds.
Thank you to all of our donors and sponsors for the Summer Reading Program, including the Grand Finale. Without your generous support, this program would not be possible! Look for banners at the Grand Finale with a complete list of this year's sponsors.
