Author Temple Grandin portrait

Illinois Libraries Present: Temple Grandin - Virtual Event

Watch the recorded version of this event. The recording will be available to view through July 6, 2024 at midnight.

Join us for a special event with Dr. Temple Grandin, one of the world’s most accomplished and well-known adults with autism. Dr. Grandin has been at the forefront of research and activism for autism and neurodiversity for decades.

Her memoir, Emergence: Labeled Autistic, was published in 1986 and she has continued to write about autism and neurodivergence over the decades. Her most recent book is Visual Thinking: The Hidden Gifts of People Who Think in Pictures, Patterns, and Abstractions. In 2010, Grandin was the focus of the semi-biographical, Emmy award-winning film, Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes.

Dr. Grandin’s research and understanding of animal behavior spearheaded a reform in the quality of life for agricultural animals worldwide.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).

This event occurred on June 4, 2024.

Navigating Solar Options

Watch the recorded version of this event. Please note the first 3 minutes does not have sound. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Are you interested in going solar? Learn if solar is right for your home and how to get the most value out of your solar system from consumer advocate experts.

Citizen’s Utility Board (CUB) is very excited about new solar incentives available to homeowners in Illinois. However, we know that with all the new advertising and high-pressure sales pitches it can be confusing to know what is best for you.

Solar basics will be covered, including: 

  • How solar panels work with your home and the grid.
  • An overview of state and federal incentives, including Illinois’ income-eligible program.
  • The difference between leasing, owning, and community solar.

This program is in partnership with Citizens Utility Board.
