The Maggie & Amos Foundation and the Mount Morris Public Library are sponsoring a free magic show at David L. Rahn Junior High on Wednesday, November 13th. The doors open at 6:30 with the show starting at 6:45.
Steve Belliveau is the official Magic Man for the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Sky! This is fun, family-friendly entertainment with a little something to amaze and mystify everyone! We would love to pack the gym!
Concessions will be available through DLRJH Student Council.
Starting in February, we will need a new trustee for the library board . One of our trustees is moving away from Mount Morris. The requirements are simple. You must live within the village limits. If you live in the village and support the library, consider becoming a trustee. We meet the third Wednesday of each month at 7 PM. Trustees help set the budget and policies for the library.
Anyone who is interested in becoming our new trustee can send a letter of interest to the library letting us know why you would like to serve in this way. If you have any questions, you may contact a board member or the library director.
Last year we gave everyone the opportunity to bring items in that they wanted to get rid of and take what they wanted. It worked so well we thought we would do it again! Bring any Christmas item that you are not using that someone else might enjoy. If you want to bring lights, they must be in good working condition. Share instead of throwing away. Find something new. It is a simple idea that can brighten everyone’s holiday!
The Mt. Morris Samuel H. Davis Lodge #96 is selling 50/50 raffle tickets to help raise money for new computers for the library. The tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.

We are going to start off Banned Book week right! On Monday, September 23rd at 6 PM, we will host our second Banned Book Read Out. We will talk about banned and challenged books, and people from the community and staff will read portions of books that have been banned and/or challenged. It might surprise you that some of these books have ever been challenged. Join us for an interesting look at literature, and our freedom to read.
Refreshments will be served following the program. This is a family friendly event.
The book sale started on September 7th, and will continue during regular business hours for at least the rest of the month. Come and find some new favorites.
