picnic A Great Day at the Library
Community Picnic

Saturday, July 28
Noon - 4 p.m.

Celebrate the summer with an old-fashioned picnic on the library lawn. This is a great chance for the family to go out and enjoy the summer weather at the library, while taking time to enjoy the festivities and charming atmosphere. There will be pony rides, a DJ, face painting, games for kids and lots more! The Wauconda Township Historical Society's Cook House will be open for tours during the picnic and is sure to entertain, as well as educate.

Pack a picnic lunch - the library will provide beverages, ice cream and entertainment for the whole family! If a picnic lunch isn't for you, Main Street Tacos are set to provide their delicious fare. Hot dogs and popcorn will also be for sale. Tacos and hot dogs are $2 and popcorn is $.50. The Friends of the Library are helping to sponsor this.

We hope to see you at the library picnic with your family and friends to relax and enjoy all that Wauconda summers have to offer!

Coming this fall...

The Wauconda Area Library is proud to announce its inaugural One Book, One Community (OBOC) program that will take place this fall. There will be two selections, one for adults and teens and one for children. The OBOC titles will be released on Thursday, August 16 during the final concert of the summer season.

Also featured will be programming and events offered throughout the fall that will collaborate with the OBOC books. Book discussions, events and other programs will be featured throughout September and October.

Books will be available for checkout starting on August 16. The OBOC strives to actively bring the community together through the public library by gathering and sharing their own diverse experiences and views. We are very excited to offer this program to our very special community.
