Baby James Gets a Library Card
Two-week old James Bernhard recently stopped by CLPL to get his first Library card.
After receiving his card, James and his mother, Heather, headed to the Youth Department to select some books where they were met by Library Technical Assistant Mary Speicher. "Miss Mary" presented baby James with a CLPL Baby Bag. Many thanks to the Rotary Club of Crystal Lake Dawnbreakers and the Crystal Lake Kiwanis Club for providing the resources to purchase materials for the Baby Bags which include a number of items including two books for babies, a Read-to-Me magnet and a number of resources about reading literacy.
