Ticket Giveaway - Smart Home: Green + Wired

No matter if our nation's economy has you seeing red or feeling blue, one thing is clear: it's never been smarter to "go green." Whether your greenness stems (no pun intended) from your affection for Mother Nature or simply your desire to save "green," it's all good. When the Library participated in the city of Des Plaines CFL bulb giveaway a few months ago, I had time to meet many residents in person and couldn't help but be impressed by the depth of knowledge and interest in green living in this town.

So we'd like to offer a special opportunity to some of Des Plaines' greenest residents - a chance to visit the Museum of Science & Industry's "Smart Home: Green + Wired" exhibit, absolutely free.
(It looks really, REALLY cool!) We're giving away 5 pairs of tickets, each pair with a total combined value of $46 and general admission is included. The ticket vouchers are valid until 1/4/2009. The tickets come with a phone number - just call and give the reservation representative the code on the ticket and you'll be on your way. Why are we doing this? As part of our ongoing effort to encourage "greenness," and also to provide lifelong learning experiences of every kind to the Des Plaines community. We want you to think of the Library as the place where Des Plaines works, learns and plays.

So - how do you win a pair of tickets?
Send me an email at

In that email, I need 4 pieces of information:

  • Your name
  • Your home address
  • Your Des Plaines Public Library card number
  • Most important - your favorite suggestion for how to go green at home, at work, or at play.
  1. The contest is open to all Des Plaines Public Library card holders (including those with a non-Des Plaines address) only.
  2. ONE ENTRY PER card number, please.
  3. You must be 13 years of age or older to participate. Younger than 13? Have mom or dad send in your entry.
  4. Employees of the Des Plaines Public Library are not eligible.
  5. A drawing for the tickets will be held on: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2008, so entries must be received by 9 PM on Monday, October 27, 2008.
Good luck on the contest!
