Kiwanis hosts speaker from local history center

In December, help us prepare for future programming by saving your empty wrapping paper tubes. As you move forward with your vacation preparations, grab onto these naked tubes and drop them off at the traffic desk anytime during the month of December. You take them out of your house, and we can do some creative crafts. For more information, call 217-345-1514.

Holiday library ornaments for sale

Give an ornament from the Charleston Carnegie Public Library as a gift. Ordered in 2002, these ornaments commemorate the original Carnegie Library from 1904. For just $ 1, you can add a piece of Charleston history to your holiday season. Supplies are limited, so collect your ornament from the loaner counter before it runs out.

All proceeds go to the library and our mission of serving our community.

Greeting cards for veterans

We are teaming up with our local VFW Post 1592 to provide you with the option of filling out one or more Veteran Vacation Cards at our local Veterans Hospitals. Bring family and friends and stop by any library office to fill out a greeting card for a vet until Friday, December 10. Our veterans deserve some holiday cheer!
