A once-in-a-CENTURY, history-making “Hands Around the Library” set to take place promptly at 7:30 pm during the annual summer lawn event!

Join the Library on Wednesday, June 26, on the front lawn for an old-fashioned evening of carnival games, bluegrass music, roving performers, and more!

Be a part of the ONCE IN A CENTURY, history-making "Hands Around the Library" set to take place during the annual summer lawn event!

"Hands Around the Library" will be the largest human chain ever seen in Park Ridge, winding all the way around the library building and culminating in a rousing chorus of "Happy Birthday" to celebrate its 100th anniversary. The moment will be photographed from the roof of the Pickwick Building.
Musical entertainment will be provided by the Third Sunday String Band.
Co-sponsored by Liberty Bank for Savings, the lawn event takes place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic basket and blanket to enjoy on the lawn; there will also be free Italian ice for everyone!
(Please note: In the case of inclement weather, the Lawn Event will be brought indoors. No food can be brought into the Library.)
For more information, please call the Library Information Coordinator at 847-720-3209 or the Library Reference Dept. at 847-720-3230.
