READY FOR PHASE II
 
Phase I of our renovation plan is winding down in the Main Room. In preparation for Phase II we will need to close the Circulation area, the A/V & Reading Room, and the Teen Loft. Beginning on Monday, December 19th we will be reducing our services but we are committed to remaining open as much as possible. The 43rd Street entrance will not be available so all patrons will need to use the Oak Park Avenue entrance. The Youth Department will be open and available to children and their care givers. We will have some patron computers available for limited use in the lower level Community Room. We will have a limited selection of new adult books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and music CDs available for checkout in the Oak Park Avenue entrance hallway, but we will be able to request materials through the Inter-Library Loan system. We thank you for your patience during this next phase of our renovation and we know you will be pleased with the new and improved Stickney-Forest View Public Library when the project is completed.

LincolnLINCOLN: FROM THE BIRTH OF FREEDOM TO A NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM
Tuesday, February 7th, 6pm


Adults and children alike are invited to come hear a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself (as portrayed by Kevin Wood) of the history of the USA from our establishment in 1776 through the end of the Civil War in 1865.

One of our nation’s most beloved and esteemed historical figures, Mr. Lincoln quotes from his best-known speeches and writings, while also providing some surprising and interesting perspectives. And while Mr. Lincoln talks about history, he also talks about “his story”: growing up on the frontier, his great desire to learn, the different jobs he had, why he liked to tell stories, what he keeps inside his hat, etc.

SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE (1993)
Saturday, February 11th, 2pm

After the death of his wife, Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) moves to Seattle with his son, Jonah (Ross Mallinger). When Jonah calls in to a talk-radio program to find a new wife for his father, Sam grudgingly gets on the line to discuss his feelings. Annie Reed (Meg Ryan), a reporter in Baltimore, hears Sam speak and falls for him, even though she is engaged. Unsure where it will lead, she writes Sam a letter asking him to meet her at the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day.

Enjoy some popcorn and a movie the second Saturday of every month at the library!
