Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse by Lucas Klauss

Phillip Flowers is a somewhat nerdy High School boy with an obsession for the apocalypse. He meets an "unconventionally hot" Christian girl named Rebekah, daughter of a missionary, and converts for her love. The book explores Phillip's mother's death, his fractured best friendship with 2 other boys, and faith.

Ravinia Tickets @ the Library

Back by popular demand, the library has free lawn seat tickets available for select Ravinia performances. Tickets are available at the Reference Desk on a first come, first served basis. Due to the limited number of tickets, there is a limit of one set per family. Tickets are all gone for 2012.

The Complete Phantom of the Opera by George Perry

Ok, I admit it; I had more than one motive for picking up this book. It's true I'm a big fan of Andrew Lloyd Weber's Phantom. But I had just seen the PBS broadcast of Love Never Dies -- which is Weber's sequel to Phantom Of The Opera -- and I wanted to check a few parts of the Libretto for continuity between the two works.

You see, in Love Never Dies, Christine shows up 10 years later with a child who has NONE of Raoul's characteristics. I also remember this line in the finale where Eric (The Phantom) implies that he is "incapable". Typical male line, obviously -- right up there with "the check is in the mail".

Anyway, this book not only gives the history of the story in all it's various incarnations, but also a history of the Paris Opera House that inspired it -- and yes, those waterways under the building really DO exist (in fact, they have to be drained on a regular basis so that the structural engineers can check the status of the foundations by boat).

The library is my second home. You guys are great.

Why thank you. We strive to be a place for everyone in our community to come in and hang out awhile.

If you have any ideas on how we can better serve you, please share them with us in our Suggestion Box or through our Contact page.

Amazing. I love the library. No suggestions.

Glad to hear that you are pleased with what we are doing. We will try to do what we can with a small budget and staff.

Please share any suggestions you do have in the future with us! We are always looking for feedback. Check out our Contact page for who to get in touch with or feel free to drop another suggestion in our Suggestion Box.

Have Pinterest Craft Sessions monthly.

Your suggestion was passed on to our adult programming coordinator.

We’ll see what we can do since the amount of craft suggestions from Pinterest seems endless!

Be sure to keep an eye on our newsletter for more crafty programs.

Just wanted you to know how friendly everyone on staff is here compared to Northlake’s Library!

Thanks for the collective pat on the back! We are happy to hear that our staff is treating you well.

We do strive to make this Library a place where anyone feels welcome and comfortable. We will keep up the good work and try to improve as well.

The layout of computer stations to lighting is TERRIBLE! I cannot see the keyboard. I can adjust the screen, but not the keyboard. Nice try. Please do over (or use a designer next time.)

We are sorry to hear that you are having issues with our computer area. We do have a few ideas in the works to improve this area, and will be looking to implement them to our computer layout in the future.

We will also have to research the costs and consider hiring an interior designer and/or architect to help us make our public areas more user-friendly and visually appealing.

Please let a librarian at one of our Info Desks know that you are having viewing issues, and we will do we can to accommodate your request.

Get more signs showing where the library is located on surrounding streets like Grand Ave/Mannheim Rd in north, south, east and west directions.

We realize that this is a problem, and we want everyone to able to find the Library easily!

We are looking into getting more directional signs posted on the nearby streets to make it easier for people to find the Library. We are also inquiring into getting a digital sign in front of the Library out on Grand Ave.

More classes on cooking and making homemade creams and lotions!

We're happy to hear that you enjoy our crafting programs. These are some of most popular type of programs, and we will continue to offer them throughout the year.

We will pass on your suggestion to our adult programming coordinator.
