On The Same Page 2013 is coming!!
The Circus arrives without warning...
But you've had plenty of warning for On The Same Page!
On The Same Page, the community wide reading program that is promoted by Roselle, Bloomingdale and Itasca libraries is almost here! If you haven't heard of it, or seen the posters up around town and in the Library, then you are missing out! Every year, the three libraries get together to encourage their communities to read the same book during the month of October. Besides everyone reading the same book, all three libraries plan programs through out the month of October that help enhance your reading experience and allow you to delve deeper into a great book! Plus, not only is it encouraged that you check out other library's programs, but this year, if you attend at least 1 program at each Library and get your circus ticket marked, you have a chance to enter into a prize giveaway for your very own eReader!
This year, the book that was chosen is Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Not only is this an excellent choice for adults, but this book also happens to be on the 2014 Abraham Lincoln Award Nominee list for high school reading in Illinois! If you are a fan of fantasy, then this book is for you, and if you aren't quite sure if you are a fan of fantasy, then this is an excellent book to try out! Even if you aren't a fan of fantasy, I challenge you to read it, if only to know what everyone in the community is talking about!
Here are just a few of the awesome programs that are lined up for the month of October at all 3 Libraries:
