BOOK CLUB MEETS SCIENCE CAFÉ
Please join us for a book and video discussion group that will be meeting at 6pm on the following Wednesdays.
February 22 - "Arctic Drift"
March 8 - "When the Killing's Done"
March 22 - "The Land of the Painted Caves"
April 12 - "Thunderstruck"
Science teachers Alan Abbott & Isaac Stewart will be our facilitators. Please call the library at 309-852-4505 or stop at the main floor circulation desk to register for your free copies of the books that you will get to keep. We will watch two short videos each evening - one about the author and one that will be a human interest story relating to the book of the evening. The books will be available for pick up in early January so you can read them at your discretion. Be sure to register so we have plenty of copies available. Refreshments will be served each evening.
FEDERAL & STATE INCOME TAX FORMS ARE HERE!
We have received Federal 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms and instructions. We have also received the Illinois 1040 Forms, as well as VERY limited quantities of the 1040 Instructions and the Illinois Schedule ICR Forms and Instructions. Any forms that we run out of or that have not been made available to us, can be printed out. Please see someone at the Information Services desk for assistance.
ACCESS TO DIGITIZED NEWSPAPERS
The Henry County Genealogical Society, Kewanee Historical Society and Kewanee Public Library District are requesting donations to digitize the Kewanee newspapers now on microfilm here at the library. Once digitized, the newspapers will be able to be searched from your computer. The link to the first group of newspapers that we had digitized is now available for you to use. Click on the heading above and it will take you to the newspapers. This is an ongoing project and as more of the microfilm is digitized, it will be added to this link until all of the microfilm has been digitized. Anyone, not just Kewanee Public Library District patrons, will be able to access this particular link to look at the old newspapers.

CREATIVITY @ THE CARNEGIE

Don't know what to do with those bins of LEGOS the kids have outgrown? The Youth Department is looking for donations of LEGOS. We are happy to take used LEGOS that are in good condition to use for a monthly program for elementary school students.

Kewanee Public Library District is partnering with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free DMV practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests, written specifically based on Illinois DMV materials, and is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that allow users to hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask sections of the screen for greater visibility on driving practice tests.
