So as not to add to the already busy Easter week, the Friends of the Library Annual Spring Book Sale will be held the previous week on April 4-6. Friends members get a sneak peek on Tuesday, April 4 from 4-7pm. If you want in on the sneak peek and you're not already a member, don't be sad because you can join that night and check out the selection. The sale will then be open to the public on Wednesday, April 5 from 9am-7pm and Thursday, April 6 from 9am-1pm.

April 10-15
Throughout National Library Week, you may bring in (FOOD FOR FINES) non-perishable food items to pay towards your fines on returned items. One item is equal to $1.00 worth of fines up to a maximum of $5.00. All food will be donated to the Kewanee Food Pantry.

Steve Kastorff, current principal at Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico Middle School and author of Camp Annawan: Civilian Conservation Corps in Henry County, Illinois, will be here Tuesday, April 18th at 6 pm to share with us the amazing history of the CCC camp constructed in Annawan and to discuss how it impacted Henry County.

Please join us for the final book & video discussion group which meets at 6pm on
April 12 - "Thunderstruck"
Science teachers Alan Abbott will be our facilitator. 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. Refreshments will be served.

Families are invited April 10 at 6pm for Robot Family Night. 5th - 8th graders will be competing in the Pop Olympics on April 18 @ 3:30pm. Ages 13 and up through adult will be making "Spring-Themed Mason Jars" on April 20 @ 3:30pm. See Sarah Barth in the Youth Services Dept. to find out about the "Horror" Book Club" which will meet April 27 @ 4pm.

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

We have received Federal 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ forms and instructions. We have also received the Illinois 1040 Forms, as well as the Illinois Schedule ICR Forms and Instructions. We are out of the Illinois 1040 Instructions as we received a very limited quantity. 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.

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.
