The Forest Preserves of Cook County are celebrating their 100th anniversary with a calendar of 100 events from September 20 to 27.
Events in Northbrook include:

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! Sign up for a library card between September 1-30 and you will walk away with a small prize. You'll also be entered for a chance to win an awesome raffle prize! Visit our Circulation Desk on the first floor for details.
Interested in joining the Teen Advisory Board? Do you need more volunteer hours? Do want to be active member in your community?
As a TAB member, you'll plan teen programs, decorate the Loft, help out with library events and often participate in random acts of chalk graffiti bombing (though this year we're going to try water graffiti). Pizza is included.
By turning off your computer instead of leaving it in sleep mode, you can save 40 watt-hours per day. That adds up to 4 cents a day, or $14 per year. If you don't want to wait for your computer to start up, set it to turn on automatically a few minutes before you get to work, or boot up while you're pouring your morning coffee.
