Spring Cleaning Incentives!
Two reasons to start your Spring cleaning this weekend:
1) The Friends of the Library need fresh donations to make their upcoming book sale a success. Please look around and see if you have any good quality books, DVDs and CDs to spare. All proceeds benefit your friendly neighborhood library. Donations are accepted on the first floor during our normal business hours. If you have a large number of items to donate, we can assist you with carrying the items - please call the library at 847-827-5551 to make arrangements. The Friends' book sale is on the weekend of April 16-18, 2010 - see their Web site for more information.
2) Des Plaines residents are invited to an Electronics Recycling Event on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at the Public Works facility. From 9 AM - 12 PM, residents may drop off computer components, TVs, phone equipment, hand-held electronics, radios and DVD/VCR players. Household appliances WILL NOT be accepted. Public Works is located at 1111 Joseph Schwab Road, north of Algonquin Road, east of River Road. To volunteer or for more information, call 847-391-5464. Download the event flyer.
