Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I enter a library, when I enter the world of books, I feel the ghosts of the past on my shoulders urging me to speech.  I hear Patrick Henry cry to the Burgsses, ‘Is Life so dear, or Peace so sweet, to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?’  I hear Sojourner Truth tell me that the hand that rocks the cradle can also rock the boat, and William Lloyd Garrison say, ‘I am in earnest, I will not be silenced.’

March Family Reading Night

Event Date: 
Mar 20 2014 - 6:00pm

A bit of history, a bit of literature, and the talent of a gifted storyteller, will all come together at the LaSalle Public Library’s March Family Reading Night.  Join us, when Chris Fascione brings to life the American Revolutionary War era with dramatic retellings of pieces like Longfellow’s “Paul Revere’s Ride” and period writings of Ben Franklin and the Founding Fathers.

 

This program was made possible through a generous grant from Target, and is a cooperative partnership of District 122 LaSalle Schools and the LaSalle Public Library.  This is a free program, open to the public, but registration is required by Monday, March 17th

 

For more information, or to register, please call the Library at:  815-223-2341.
