Kindness Rocks! We’re painting around the theme of “Connection” on Tuesday, April 24th from 4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Supplies provided, or bring your own. If you want to do a little research ahead of time, collect images or quotations that make you think of connection and bring them with you. If you have your own favorite brushes or a rock you are working on, you can bring them along.

Money Smart Week @ THE LIBRARY

Stop by library on Thursday, April 26th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and have representatives from the Illinois State Treasurer's office search for unclaimed property in your name. You can also visit their website to search on your own.

Bring the little ones along for a Special Edition Storytime: Dollars & Sense Storytime from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The State Treasurer is holding 2.9 billion dollars in unclaimed funds for Illinoisans. The State holds these lost funds until they are claimed by either the original owner or their heirs. Property is returned at no cost with the proper identification. Common types of unclaimed property include: checking and savings accounts, uncashed wage and payroll checks, uncashed stock dividends and stock certificates, insurance payments, utility deposits, customer deposits, accounts payable, credit balances, refund checks, money orders, traveler’s checks, mineral proceeds, court deposits, uncashed death benefit checks and life insurance proceeds.
