It does a librarian's heart good to see young people with a passion for reading and learning. If you ask most librarians, you'll get a similar story about developing a love for books and reading - and maybe even having some fun experiences at the Library - at an early age. We are proud of our Des Plaines kids and we look forward to seeing all of you for this year's Summer Reading Club, "Read on the Wild Side!"
