Thursday, October 23rd, 10:00 am, Past & Present Book Club Do you enjoy reading nonfiction or biographies? The Past and Present Book Club meets monthly to discuss fascinating books, people, and events. For the September meeting, the group will be discussing the pivotal Battle of the Bulge. This battle took place between December 1944 and January 1945. It was a major German offensive campaign along the Western Front that took the Allied Forces by surprise. United States forces bore the brunt of the attack and incurred the highest casualties for any operation during the war. Despite this, the battle resulted in a decisive Allied victory. All are welcome to attend and enjoy the discussion! For more information, contact the library at 309-467-2922.
Thursday, October 23rd, 6:30—8:00 pm, and Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 am —12:00 pm Geek Out with the Eureka Public Library Open House Join us for this special open house celebrating everything you geek! To “geek” something means to love, enjoy, celebrate, have an interest in, know a lot about, or love to promote. Everyone geeks something—such as our kids, grandkids, hobbies, books, and more—and the Eureka Public Library District supports all of our interests with a wide variety of books, DVDs, and online resources to name a few. Enjoy special treats and have your picture taken for our “I Geek . . . “ campaign. Feel free to bring a prop to use in the photo. Stop in, share what you geek, have your picture taken, and see what the library has to offer you. For more information, contact the library at 309-467-2922.
