We had a chance to take a tour of the magnificent Des Plaines Library with Assistant Administrator Roberta Johnson. She showed us all around the library which boasts 80,000 sq ft and four floors of anything you can imagine. Materials in 48 different languages, free wifi throughout the building, computer classes on all sorts of business applications, study rooms, 12,000 DVDs and 12,000 CDs, foreign language books and videos, and art…everywhere!!
Get ready for a great weekend, thanks to the Chicago Botanic Garden Antiques & Garden Fair. From Friday, April 20th to Sunday, April 22nd, you have the opportunity to visit over 100 exhibitors from the United States and Europe showcasing classical and contemporary garden furnishings, botanical art, and home and garden design.
Friday the 13th… what could be a better date to have opening day for the 2005 World Champion Chicago White Sox team to kick off the 2012 season?
