We're Almost Ready!
Just four more days until the PlainTalk blog opens its virtual doors! Thanks to everyone who has stopped by so far, sending emails and comments and cheering us on.
That's a view of downtown Des Plaines, taken from the Des Plaines Public Library's lovely outdoor terrace. (Didn't know we had a terrace? Stop by and check it out on our 4th floor.) Here in the library we feel privileged to have this very central location and bird's-eye view of the city, so it seems only natural that our new PlainTalk blog will celebrate the very best of what makes Des Plaines a unique and vibrant community.
PlainTalk makes its debut Monday, July 2, 2007. How about a little homework for the coming weekend? Monday's topic will be...pizza. So consider that your permission slip for some carb-heavy, extra greasy pizza-eating over the next few days! Don't worry - we'll work it off together at the Fourth of July Parade.
Look for the library staff in the Fourth of July parade, including the debut of our awesome Book Cart Drill Team. And don't forget -- look for PlainTalk on Monday, July 2, 2007!
