Goodbye Home Run Wednesdays, Hello Dolphin Lake!

Well, our Home Run Wednesdays will draw to a close next week. The lucky few who got free tickets to the Windy City Thunderbolts will have a blast! Don't forget to show Ms. Dee or Ms. Sarah your little blue ticket to get a little special something at the game. Then we're off on August 1st to the Dolphin Lake pool for our Gold Medal Splash Fest summer reading finale. You'll find your ticket in the completion bag that you can pick up at the Youth Services Desk. Lots of good snacks and fun in the cool water with your reading pals--what's better than that!
It's hard to believe but I'm already making plans for the fall K-2 Storyhour. You'll remember that last year our K-2 kids heartily embraced healthy snacks at storyhour and I plan on some yummy, healthy and unusual snack surprises again this session. So enjoy the end of our summer reading program but keep in mind that, really, K-2 is not that far in the distance. See you at the pool!

We Have Zoo Passes!

Did you know that the library has Brookfield Zoo passes available for its Homewood and East Hazel Crest patrons? For a cash deposit of $25, you will receive a pass for four to Brookfield Zoo, good for three days! Only one pass per family.
Here are four cautions:
1. There is no grace period so a $2 a day late fee will be added should you return the passes late.
2. You may not return the pass through the book drop.
3. If you were to lose the passes, there is a $10 fee in addition to the not refunded deposit.
4. The passes are available on a "first come, first served" basis.
So grab some sunscreen, your kids, and your library card and treat yourself to a day of wonder at the Brookfield Zoo! Questions? Call us at (708) 798-0121 x 222. Check out Brookfield Zoo's website, too!
