See the Moon through a Telescope and Hear Astronomer Lee Green

If you want to hear Lee Green, the solar eclipse astronomer who spoke to us last year, put Oct. 20 on your calendar.  We will have child crafts at 6:30 and Lee at 7:00 pm.  He will be at the library to talk about the International Night of the Moon.  Guess what – HE IS BRINGING HIS TELESCOPE again.

HALFWAY TO A NEW LIBRARY !! But we still need your help, please

Due to our community’s tremendous support, as of November 2017, we have $403,000 in the bank for a new facility that has an expected cost of $800,000.

We are continuing our pledge drive to complete our mission of providing an accessible library to the citizens of Chenoa.

Please contact the library if you wish to help – 815-945-4253. THANK YOU.
