Updated Information

Italianfest is this weekend and I have updated our main webpage to indicate things that you may be interested in.

Just in brief to save you a click -

**Our Library will be closing at 3:30 Saturday, September 22nd so that the staff can walk in the Italianfest parade with Bookabella, the Children's Library mascot (quite an impressive guy...come out and meet him!!!)

**The Library will be hosting an Italian Film on Friday night (doors opening at 6 and movie to begin at 7pm) called Alla luce del sole (Come Into the Light) in the Community Room. Admission is FREE and open to the general public. The film, in Italian with English subtitles, is not suitable for small children.

**The Library's September 2007 through February 2008 newsletter is being printed and will soon be mailed to the homes in our District. You can read it right now online. If you do not receive one at home, please pick one up in the Library at the end of this month.

**New Online Databases have been purchased and are in the process of being added to our website. You can preview them right now online on the main webpage. They include a World Atlas, a pricing database for antiques, Literary database for info on authors, works and criticism, archives of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Science experiments and topics, tribute to Collinsville war veterans, Illinois farm products, legal forms and more. Don't miss out on these helpful sites!

Have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you at the Italianfest. Stop by the Pan Fountain Booth and talk to the committee members about their plans for refurbishing the Fountain on the front lawn of the Library. The Pan Fountain flyer is available at the Library.
