Put your books away and your party hats on and get ready to celebrate Lake Bluff Library’s 100th birthday. The library is teaming up with Lake Bluff Brewing Company for their Summer Block Party on Saturday,
August 24 from 5 to 10 p.m.to celebrate 100 years serving the community.
The festivities will include food and drinks from the Lake Bluff Brewing Company, Maevery Public House, and Donati’s Pizza.
Griffith, Grant & Lackie will sponsor hot dogs from The Left Bank. The event promises fun for the whole family,with balloon artist Holly Nagel twisting up impressive balloon creations from 5 to 7 p.m. and live music by Wichita Jacks from 6:30 to 7 p.m. and 9:30 to 10 p.m. There will also be raffle prizes and special birthday treats. While you enjoy the final glorious weeks of summer in Lake Bluff with friends and family, take a moment to appreciate the library’s mission of providing a haven for learning,studying,and communicating in a shared,respectful space dedicated to the enrichment of the community. From the summer reading club and story time on the green to new mom Mondays and adult crafts,the library serves as far more than a place to check out books. Founded by the Lake Bluff Women’s Club in 1919 as a memorial to the veterans of World War 1, it has remained a fixture of the community ever since.
