DeKalb Public Library is the winner of an AT&T Investing in Illinois Award. The award provides contributions to organizations and programs that improve lives in their communities by advancing education, economic growth, new technologies and essential community services. State Rep. Robert Pritchard, R-Hinckley, nominated the library for the honor.
The DeKalb Public Library hopes to use the gift of $1,000 to hold a Star Wars Extravaganza Day in April.
The library expects the event will draw the public to the library, and it will also provide family-oriented activities to achieve its goal, “to inform, educate, entertain and inspire the community.”
