We are now showing a recently released movie on the second Tuesday of the month @ 2pm. August 8th will be "Going in Style"! We want to thank Wanee Theater for providing us with popcorn! If you missed it at the theater, you still have a chance to see it on the big screen!

See Sarah Barth in the Youth Services Dept. to find out about the "Horror" Book Club which will meet Thursday, August 24th @ 4:30pm.

Join us on the fourth Thursday of the month at noon in the Community Room. Find a recipe that fits this month's theme (Mexico), prepare it and bring it along with copies of your recipe to share for a delightful lunch with old and new friends!

Friends of the Library present "Creativity @ the Carnegie". Come "sit & sew" with your knitting, crocheting, embroidery, cross stitching or quilting. Check out our summer hours on the events calendar for details.

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.
