What's Happening @ The Library...

Soon To Be Famous Illinois Author Contest!

  • Are you an aspiring writer trying to get your book discovered?  If so, you can participate in the Soon to be Famous Illinois Author project!  The project is seeking an Illinois author with a self-published adult fiction book that libraries can help to make “famous.”   The Three Rivers Library will be a sponsor this year.  This means you can fill out the form and include us as the sponsoring library.  You will need to fill out the application online, or ask a librarian to help you out.  You will also need to upload your book when submitting or bring a copy of your book on a flash drive or CD to either library location.


    Instructions for authors can be found here and the application here.


    Submissions will be accepted until December 15, 2014.  For more information, visit the website at

The Great Gift Wrap Up


    Do you have a hard time wrapping your gifts away from the prying eyes of children?  Come to the library for a child-free wrapping zone!  We will supply some bows, wrapping paper, scissors and tape, for up to 3 presents.  You can wrap more than 3, just bring your own supplies to use.  We will have some snacks to munch on and Holiday music playing.  Registration is required, but as long as you are registered, you can drop in anytime between 5:30-7:30pm to wrap your gifts.
