MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT 202

February 27, 2018

Education Partners, 

You are cordially invited to the 2018 Great Read’s Grand Finale at 6 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 28th at the Joliet Library/Black Road branch, 3395 Black Road, Joliet.

This year’s program has honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy and impact on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his death.

Our Library partners in Plainfield, Joliet, Fountaindale (Bolingbrook), Joliet Junior College,  White Oak (Lockport/Romeoville/Crest Hill) and Lemont have presented dozens of terrific, educational and fun programs about Dr. King, Civil Rights, etc.

Now, we’re excited to end the program with “Legacy – Our Wealth of Music”, a performance of Civil Rights-era music by Chicago musician and educator Maggie Brown!

We will also announce the winners of the Great Read Art Contest.

This event is free, books will be given away, and refreshments will be served!

***Finally, in the spirit of giving and peace, please bring canned goods or supplies to the Grand Finale. Donations will benefit Bags of Hope, Morningstar Mission of Joliet and the St. John Food Pantry. Click here for a list of preferred items.

Join us for what promises to be a wonderful evening promoting literacy, reading, conversation and community.

Thanks in advance.

Tom Hernandez

Director of Community Relations
