On Tuesday, June 21, at 6:30 p.m., the Indian Prairie Public Library Foundation will celebration the first installation of personalized, engraved bricks in its Reading Garden with music by Trillium and free ice cream. The program is free and open to the public. Drop in.
Trillium is a fabulous, four-piece band who will perform an energetic array of Celtic, folk, ragtime, bluegrass, and Dixieland music. The band features Mim Eichmann on hammered dulcimer and vocals, Ed Hall on guitar and banjo, Doug Lofstrom on bass and Jonathan DeSouza on fiddle and mandolin.
The Foundation started this new fundraising effort earlier in the year, inviting community members to make a gift to the library that entitled you to an engraved brick in the patio area of the Reading Garden. The brick pavers are a perfect way to honor any special occasion – a birth, a graduation, or an anniversary. They are a unique gift for the person who has everything and can be a meaningful remembrance of a loved one. Bricks can still be purchased through the library’s website or in person at the library, for installation in the fall.
The IPPL Foundation was formed by a group of civic leaders in 1992 to develop sources of financial support for programs, equipment and services not covered by the library’s working budget. In the past, the Foundation has supported programs for adults and children, purchased equipment and permanent building enhancement, funded the summer reading outreach program and the Chan Concert series. The Foundation is a 501©3 corporation so your gift is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
