Just another important role that local public libraries play in their communities: serving as warming centers during the times that the Arctic deep freeze ventures south of the Canadian border. Like yesterday and today in the Chicago area.
This January I'll be warming up at libraries all over Northern Illinois:
Tuesday, January 13th - 7 pm @ the Robert Rowe Public Library in Sheridan:
Thursday, January 15th - 7 pm @ the Downers Grove Public Library in Downers Grove:
Saturday, January 17th - 10 - 2 pm @ the Indian Prairie Public Library in Darien for their first Local Authors' Fair:
Sunday, January 18th - 2 pm @ the Barrington Area Library in Barrington:
Those are all actual visits for presentations (if Nature cooperates!)
I have some virtual visits as well. I'll be Skyping with book clubs at the Orland Park Public Library and the Plainfield Public Library on January 20 and 21st.
A very busy month -- but's that's good. I won't have time to think about how cold it is!
