Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Congratulations on your Centennial!  The thought of all the books and stories that have been checked out from your library and read over those years is awe-inspiring.  You should be very proud.  …  That’s what libraries do: they connect us as human beings.  That’s what your library has done for a hundred years.

February Family Reading Night

Event Date: 
Feb 20 2014 - 6:00pm

Useful…Mysterious…Fascinating!  Historians, who have studied the art and science of cryptology – the use of codes and ciphers – have documented that secret messages have been used for nearly 4,000 years to communicate private information…sometimes between friends, sometimes among military personnel, sometimes by criminals and sometimes by spies! 

In this fun family reading night, families will learn a bit about techniques that change understandable communication to incomprehensible nonsense, as well as a bit of the science involved in some of the processes.

Join us for February Family Reading Night to learn more about this interesting subject, tips for sending your own secret messages, and to check out cool books about the subject!

Family Reading Nights are a partnership between District 122 LaSalle Schools and the LaSalle Public Library.  This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required by Monday, February 17, 2014.  The LaSalle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle, IL  For more information, or to register, please call the Library at 815-223-2341.
