Talking Points

This Sunday at 12:15 pm, kicking off the library’s 10th Anniversary Party, our talented Tinley Park teens will put on a special show, and you don’t want to miss it!

Do you know this face? You probably do if you've ever visited the 1st floor Adult Reference Desk. This is Glenn Kersten, a 13 year employee of our library, and 8/29 was his last day before retirement. Glenn has been an anchor of kindness, patience, & expertise in our Reference Dept., & he will be missed! If you have a fond memory of interacting with Glenn at the library, FEEL FREE TO LEAVE A COMMENT to this blog post.

Second Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition

We had a really successful and fun event this year, thanks to everyone who participated this summer! We hope you had fun exploring the other libraries in the area.

Unfortunately, no one's game card from Tinley Library was drawn as a prize winner this year. ☹ However, Tinley Library members made up a significant proportion of this year's participants! Here are some more statistics from the Geocaching Competition.
