7 Summer Reading is happening now until July 8 for all ages Preschool through Adults. It's not too late to join!

We will be showing a recently released movie on the second Tuesday of the month beginning June 13 @ 2pm. The first movie will be "Beauty & the Beast"! 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!

During the Adult Summer Reading Program, we will be offering Adult Coloring on Wednesdays beginning June 7 and running through July 5. We have coloring sheets and colored pencils for you to use or you are more than welcome to bring your own. This activity will be held in the lower level of the library from 1:30-3:00pm. Come join us for some relaxation and fun!

June is full of activities: Scratch Coding for 3rd-5th graders, Magician Eldon Roark, Full STEAM Ahead for 1st-8th graders, Buggin' Out for 4th-8th graders, Super Stolie Program, and Science with Dr. Abbott. Check the calendar for dates and times! See Sarah Barth in the Youth Services Dept. to find out about the "Horror" Book Club which will meet June 22 @ 4pm.

Come join the fun with Tissue Paper Canvas Art, June 1 @ 2:30pm; Jello Lip Gloss, June 8; and DIY Succulent Planters, June 22. 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 (French), 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.

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.
