This library is a joyful space for the 400,000 people who visit every year, and for the staff who serve them.
If you walk through the building, you will see people engaged in book clubs, or learning how to research their genealogy, or teens making cards for hospitalized kids, or seniors having a free lunch, or people learning English, or people voting early for the Presidential primaries.
Did I mention the 300,000 books, movies, music, video games and WiFi hot spots? Did I forget all the kids’ story times?
It is indeed a wonderful place, and I am honored that the people of Des Plaines have entrusted me to be the Director of their treasure.
