Chapter Book Readers "Stick Together!"

The Greenville Public Library invites all chapter book readers to sign up for "Stick Together." StickTogether™ is a fun and collaborative activity where participants apply colored stickers to a large coded grid. Once all the stickers are attached, a vibrant mosaic image is revealed! To be a participant, please sign up at the circulation desk. For each book read, you will receive five stickers to place on the grid. After the grid is complete, one lucky participant will take it home! 

Annual Spring Fundraiser

It's time for the library's annual spring fundraiser. All proceeds will be used for the library's summer reading programs. The library purchases things like reading logs, bags, bookmarks, DQ coupons, and prizes for the high school/adult reading program. The library also pays for a local singer to put on a concert on the last Wednesday in July as part of our July programming.

Join us at the Bradford Room on Thursday, April 19th at 7 p.m.

Kevin Kaegy will present

"Celebrating the Illinois Bicentennial: Highlights of Illinois History"

$8.00 Donation

Refreshments will be served

This year, the library will have a silent auction item. A local artist, Barbara Dyar, whose work is displayed at the library, has made an Illinois-themed cutting known as Scherenschnitte. The item will be on display at the library for patrons to view.

National Take a Chance Day

Take a Chance Day on April 23rd is the perfect excuse for you to play with some odds and venture out into uncharted territory. The origins of take a Chance Day is unknown, though we think the creators of the unofficial holiday wanted people to put away their inhibitions and their fear of failure and do something bold and risky. On Monday, patrons who check out an item will be given the chance to win a jar of prizes donated by area businesses. Take a chance and guess how many objects are in the jar. The patron with the closest guess will win the jar. Take a chance on Greenville and shop in town. Thank you to all the businesses who have contributed to the jar:

  • Kaskaskia College
  • Toys, Clothes, and More
  • Pepin's
  • Panther Products
  • Watson's
  • Greenville University
  • Absolutely You Salon
  • Greenville Tire Company

National Pretzel Day

National Pretzel Day began in 2003 when Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell declared April 26 "National Pretzel Day" to acknowledge the importance of the pretzel to the state's history and economy. The Pennsylvania Dutch immigrants introduced pretzels to North America in the 19th century. Pennsylvania is the center of American pretzel production for both hard and soft pretzels, producing 80% of the nation's pretzels. Come to the library on Thursday and receive a bag of pretzels with a checkout. We would like to thank Capri IGA for providing the pretzels to hand out.
