Remembering - good for the mind and spirit

First, a reminder: there is still time to send us a photo of your beloved for our Valentine's Day "Who Do Ya Love?" video project. Email a photo (jpeg preferred) to me, Karen McBride, at
Photos resized to 1024 X 768 work best but I will work with whatever you have. Please send them in by the end of the day on Thursday, February 10, 2011. Why do we make a big deal about Valentine's Day here at DPPL? Because year after year, our most searched subject heading is "Love Stories." So we know there are some romantics out there in Des Plaines.

If romance isn't your style, however, we have other events & programs lined up for our "Remember" theme. Here are a few examples - visit our "Remember" Web page for complete details.

For kids - Let's Get Scrappy! - Save your special memories and photos! A staff member from Archiver's in Niles will show how fun and easy scrapbooking can be as you create your first scrapbooking page. Please bring photos of one person, theme, or event. Remember that photos may be cut/decorated/glued to the page.
Two sessions on Monday, February 21, 2011 (Presidents' Day).
