Remembering Oliver Sacks

Famed neurologist and author Oliver Sacks died yesterday, August 30th, 2015. People who loved his writings will surely miss his humor, charm, and insight.

In honor of his passing, I've put together a collection of his writings. Perhaps after seeing some of these you will recall a favorite passage of his in a book that you've already read, or you may discover something new you would like to read.

3rd Annual Geocaching Contest Winners

The drawing for this year's prizes is now complete in the Third Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition. Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that no one from Tinley Park won this year. Winning geocaching teams were from Oak Lawn, Lansing, Palos Heights, and Alsip/Merrionette Park libraries.

I hope you had fun exploring the area's libraries and finding their geocaches. Thank you for playing, and come back next year for the Fourth Annual Multi-Library Geocaching Competition!

Your Library: One Size Fits All

Did you know that 24.4% of unemployed individuals without access to the internet utilize the library to conduct their job search? Did you know that libraries cater to all members of the community, from small business owners to students? Have you ever noticed how you just seem to study better when you are in a library? Do you think libraries have an impact on education? Ever wondered about some of the many ways libraries help serve a community?
