Our View: DeKalb library benefits from national grant
Thumbs up: To the DeKalb Public Library for securing its seventh consecutive Big Read grant. The $15,000 award from the National Endowment for the Arts will fund a series of events surrounding “True Grit” by Charles Portis. The1968 novel is about a young girl seeking revenge for her father’s murder. We can’t wait to see what fun the library and the other members of the steering committee (Altrusa International of Sycamore/DeKalb, Kishwaukee College Family Literacy program, DeKalb School District 428 and Northern Illinois University’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences) have in store for us.
