Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

I can’t help but imagine how many people’s lives have been changed by 100 years of reading your books.  …  I remember how it felt as a child walking into that quiet room and realizing that I could go just about anywhere I wanted.  That room was an escape from the world, and, at the same time a window onto any part of the universe that I chose to explore.  …  I still feel a sense of possibility and experience a feeling that time has stopped when I walk into a library.  I usually don’t have a particular book in mind, but like to wander around and see what I can discover.

Melikin Puppets perform Rumpelstilskin

Event Date: 
May 22 2014 - 6:00pm

On Thursday, May 22nd, at 6:00 p.m., the LaSalle Public Library will again host the delightful Melikin Puppets, performing “Rumpelstiltskin,” an exciting tale of a boastful father, a greedy king, a wicked and clever dwarf, and a desperate daughter caught in the middle, first transforming straw into gold, then searching for the name, “Rumpelstiltskin!”  Special effects, theatrical lighting and sound, make this colorful performance engaging and recommended for all ages.
