Writing in the Margins: Winter 2016

My last newsletter column focused on how Eisenhower has the best customer loyalty program around. Over the last few months, we’ve added even more services available specifically to residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights.

We now offer Eisenhower Exclusives, copies of high-demand books, movies, and TV shows. You can check out any three of these items at a time and keep them for up to two weeks.

Thinking of taking in Seurat’s masterpiece at the Art Institute of Chicago? Check out a museum pass from Eisenhower. Each pass admits up to four people.

For those of us who scrapbook, the work – and fun – never ends. We now have a collection of Cricut cartridges that you can check out to use with your own Cricut machines. Don’t have a machine yet? We do! And you can check that out, too.

We now have more flexibility in bringing our various collections to events in the community with our new Book Bike, generously provided by the Friends of the Library. We already took it out a few times in the fall. Look for it again next spring.

If there’s anything you would like us to consider for the future, stop by for a cup of coffee and a chat with me during one of the monthly Coffee with the Director sessions. I’d love to hear your suggestions. Remember, we’re your Eisenhower Library, and we’re here for you.
