You asked for t-shirts that promoted reading
and the Kirkland Public Library — here they are!
The Friends of the Library are now offering these shirts for sale at their cost.
The jade colored shirt, “So Many Books, So Little Time” is $8.95 per shirt.
The one shown in coral, “When in Doubt, Check it Out” is also available in electric green and is $9.95 per shirt as they are the ultra-soft material.
All are personalized with Kirkland Public Library, Kirkland, IL and are available in both children’s and adult sizes — up-charge for 2X, 3X in both designs (4X and 5X only available in jade shirt).
If you would like to order these shirts, please call the library at 815-522-6260 during our regular business hours so we can make sure we have all the details correct — M & Th 10-7, T & W 1-7, and Saturday 9-3. All orders must be in by Thursday, March 22nd at 3:00 p.m.
Don’t delay! Once the deadline has passed and our order is placed, we will not be able to get these designs again.
The Kirkland Public Library and the Kirkland Historical Society will offer a program on The Influence of American Rock ‘n’ Roll on the Beatles. We know the Fab Four, know their music, but do you know who their greatest musical influences were?
This multi-media program illustrates the influence of Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and other American recording artists from the 1950’s on the Beatles through side-by-side comparisons.
Refreshments will be served – All are Welcome!
Adult Book Club meets on the third Thursday of the month. All are welcome. If you’d like to join us on March 15th, let me know so I can get you a copy of our selection.

Easter Story Time Easter Egg Hunt
Join us on Saturday, March 31st at 12:30 p.m. at the high school football field bleachers for story time before the Easter egg hunt.
Please remember the drop box is to be used only if the library is not open. We only check it first thing when we open and it is not rechecked again until the next time we open. Your book could sit in the box and not be checked in on time. If we are open, please return it inside so that a fine does not accumulate. Also, remember DVDs, audio books, and books borrowed from other libraries may not be put in the drop box — they must all be returned inside and are subject to a fine if deposited in the box. Also, do not leave anything between the doors.
DROP BOX WILL BE LOCKED OUT OVER ALL HOLIDAYS —
We lock our drop box over all holidays as we’ve had trash thrown in and books damaged. Please remember this and return your items either before or after the holiday. Do not leave anything between the doors or you will be responsible for damaged and/or lost items.
Looking to honor a friend, remember a loved one or celebrate a special occasion? Supporting the Kirkland Public Library through a monetary donation furthers the library’s mission to share the joy of reading, discovery and creativity with the community. Your gift also allows us to honor or memorialize someone special to you.
Monetary donations may be dropped off at the library during regular business hours or mailed to us at PO Box 189, Kirkland, IL 60146.
Let’s Get Cooking!
The idea is to critique the cookbook, not each other’s cooking. The theme for the April meeting is has not been chosen yet. Cookbooks will be borrowed from other libraries so that we will have a variety of books to give our opinion on. Each person will check out a book, make at least one recipe from the book and share their thoughts about the book with the group. If members want to, samples of their chosen recipe may be brought that evening so we can all enjoy.
The original Adult Cookbook Club will usually meet on the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m.; however, unlike our other book club, we will only meet every two months. This has been such a popular addition, we are now taking names to start a second group. If you’d like to join in on the fun, please get on the waiting list with one of our librarians.
Please remember that family pets are not allowed in the library. Yes, you’re right – we did have Banjo with us; however, she was being trained to become a leader dog. As with any other public place, a service dog is certainly welcome to be in the library with the person they are assisting.
