We are now showing a recently released movie on the second Tuesday of the month @ 2pm. July 11th will be "The Zookeeper's Wife"! 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!

Local Author, Jill Bartelt, will be signing, as well as, talking about her books "The Trojan Peace: First Light" and "The Trojan Peace: Half Light" on Thursday, July 13 from 4-6pm in the Library's Community Room. During her talk, her husband and Kewanee Schools' art teacher, Marc Nelson will be demonstrating Turkish stringed insturments. Jill will also be showing some slides. Jill is currently a teacher's aide at Lyle Pre-K and previously taught math at Blackhawk East. Books will be available to purchase for $20 and $22.

July 5th is the final activity for the 2017 Summer Reading Program "Reading by Design". "Full STEAM Ahead" is for 1st - 8th graders and meets at 2pm. July 8th is the last day for the kids to pick out prizes. See Sarah Barth in the Youth Services Dept. to find out about the "Horror" Book Club which will meet July 20 @ 4:30pm.

Come join the fun with Bath Salt Geodes on Thursday, July 6. Activities begin at 2:30pm and are for 13 year olds and up.

Join us on the fourth Thursday of the month at noon in the Community Room. Find a recipe that fits this month's theme (Northeastern U.S.), 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.
