Feature Story

How partnerships help everyone As 2017 nears, we look forward to finalizing the details of our renovation project that have occupied a great deal of our energies over the past year. The next issue of your library newsletter will feature plans to move back to our renovated building, along with a preview of new services. In the meantime, I’d like to reflect on some of the things we have learned this past year and invite the whole community to participate in an event planned for early 2017. Since April 1, we have held nearly 300 adult programs, attended by almost 7,000 people. With minimal programming space available during our renovation, we have been fortunate to host programs through the generosity of the following organizations: Buffalo Grove Park District, RAM Restaurant & Brewery - Wheeling, National Louis University - Wheeling Campus, Wheeling Park District and the Village of Wheeling. Without the willingness of these organizations to allow us the use of their space, we would have had to significantly reduce our adult programming. Being able to host our programs off-site has helped members who have come to rely on library programs to learn something new or be entertained. The library has also benefited by attracting first-time participants to many of its programs, while our host organizations have benefited with new visitors to their facilities. In summary, we are all better off by partnering together. In December we will launch another type of partnership - a One Book, One Community program in collaboration with Vernon Area Public Library District and Cook Memorial Public Library District. This ambitious program will bring our three libraries together to host programs and a visit by Thrity Umrigar, author of The Story Hour. I invite you to join us at Indian Trails Library or one of our partner libraries for One Book, One Community programs. As we move into a new year, we will continue to partner with local organizations to provide stronger future offerings to our community.
