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! 

Infant/Toddler Story Time

The Greenville Public Library was a recent recipient of the Back to Books Grant from the state of Illinois. The Library purchased new board books to encourage reading with little ones. Beginning on Wednesday, September 12, 2018, the library will be partnering with Project Parenting to offer story time for infants/toddlers and care givers that will include stories, songs, crafts, and chances for free books. The program will begin at 10:30 am on Wednesdays until May. There are some Wednesdays we will not have Story Time . Please check with the library before planning to attend.

Better Breakfast Month

The month of September is Better Breakfast Month. Originating during World War I, the United States government encouraged citizens to eat a Better Breakfast. The program gained momentum again during World War II. Then, in 1951, the Cereal Institute promoted Better Breakfast Month for the first time in September. Research gathered by the institute suggested that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. They selected the month to coordinate with children returning to school and businesses gearing back up after the lull of summer vacation. As a result, September became the ideal time to promote the benefits of a healthful and delicious breakfast. On Wednesday, September 19th, check out an item and you may be one of ten lucky winners of a free egg breakfast at Huddle House. We'd like to thank Huddle House for donating the breakfasts.

National Johnny Appleseed Day

On National Johnny Appleseed Day, we honor the man who made apple (and pear) trees grow heavy with the bounty of their fruit across most of this country. On September 26th, we commemorate the day of his birth and his legendary wit, wisdom and enduring story. His story is quite interesting. To read a bit more about him, click HERE. Come to the Library on Wednesday, September 26th. Check out an item and receive an apple and an apple-scented bookmark provided by Buchheit. Thanks to Buchheit for donating the items.
