Summer Adventures

While it's not officially summer (that happens on Monday, June 20th), it certainly feels like it around
here.  Young people are out of school and regularly visiting the library, especially now that summer reading has started.  There are so many things to do this summer and places to visit.  Did you know the Roselle History Museum has dropped off passports for our patrons use this summer so that you can visit great museums and nature centers in the Chicagoland area?  Many of these places have fun activities for you to do while you are there visiting.  The passport is organized by city and has useful information about each of the locations such as hours, admission costs (so many are free), and if they have any special event days.  Plus, if you visit six (yes, you heard me correctly, just six) and get the passport stamped, you can mail it in to try to win a $25 gift card.  A chance to have fun and also win a prize.

Another great resource the library has is the Museum Adventure pass.  These are passes you can check out from us which help you get free admission or a special discounts at local museums (Legoland Discovery Center is an option) and zoos.   All you need is your library card and we can check a pass out to you.  Only one adventure pass may be checked out per family during the seven day loan period.  We have limited passes available so it's on a first come, first serve basis.  Check out Museum Pass Adventure to find out more and if any other restrictions apply.  It's a great resource.  I have used it to visit Brookfield Zoo and it save me a lot of money!

Finally, don't forget to check out our 900 nonfiction section.  It is full of information on interesting places to visit.  Want to go to Ireland (my parents are in September)?  Then check out  Dewey numbers 941.5.  Visiting Mount Rushmore this year (it's on my bucket list)?  Dewey number 978.393.  We have books about anywhere in the world, whether it is part of the fifty nifty United States, our bordering neighbors of Canada and Mexico, or Japan which is around the other side of the globe. 

So come on into the library for help on creating fun summer adventures and precious memories!  You'll be glad you did!
