50th Anniversary Festival


Sunday, October 01, 12:00 PM-3:00 PM.

Since we first opened our doors in 1973, we’ve been grateful to be a part of the communities of Norridge and Harwood Heights. To thank you for 50 years of support, we’re throwing a ’70s themed party and you’re invited!

On Sunday, October 1st the Library grounds will be transformed into a 1970s-era festival with activities for all ages. Between sets from the Elvis tribute artist Hugo Colin and the Barefoot Hawaiian Dancers, boogie down to the sounds of the ’70s with our DJ. Drop into our Kid’s Zone to play some games and do some crafts. Wear your grooviest ’70s attire for our costume parade and take a selfie in our photo booth. The library will be closed for service but don’t forget to hustle inside for some funky crafts and chow down on a free donut from Allegretti’s Bakery.

This fall we’re encouraging everyone to read with our One Book One Community program. For kids we’re suggesting you read Frog and Toad Together by Arnold Lobel. And for older readers, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. We’ll have free copies of both of these books available for anyone who comes to our 50th Anniversary Festival.
