This week you'll see some landscapers beginning to work around the library. Some of our trees and shrubs have gotten a bit unruly. They look bad and cause sight line safety issues in the parking lot so they need to be replaced Early fall is a good time to plant because the cooler weather and autumn rains put less stress on young plants. So, please bear with us, this work is going to lead to a beautiful spring.
Open Studio hours in The Workshop this Thursday, November 2nd, have unfortunately been canceled.
The space will be open again on Friday at 3:00 PM. We hope you'll drop by then to get creative with our sewing/embroidery machines, Cricut cutter, stamping tools, or digital media equipment.

All Glasses Are Now Gone
Starting Wednesday, August 16th at 9:00 AM, we'll be offering eclipse glasses to residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights.
Due to high demand and concerns regarding the safety of solar eclipse glasses:
- Glasses will be given exclusively to residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights.
- Glasses will be given only to those with valid Eisenhower Library cards.
- Recipients will be required to sign a waiver.
- Recipients must be 18 or older with valid proof of age.
- Recipients under 18 will need a parent or legal guardian present to sign on their behalf.
- Glasses are limited to two per library card.
- Glasses will be available on a first come, first served basis, while supplies last.

The safest way to view an eclipse is on video. On Monday, August 21st, from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM, we'll be live streaming NASA's footage of the event. The agency will share images from spacecraft, aircraft, high-altitude balloons, and the International Space Station alongside coverage of eclipse events at parks, libraries, stadiums, festivals, and museums across the U.S.
