Bee in garden smallThe library is sponsoring a bee as part of the Clarendon Hills Park Foundation’s “Bees on Parade” public art project. The library commissioned children’s book author/illustrator Kevin Luthardt to design and paint the library’s bee. Be sure to stop by the library’s garden area between now and mid-September to see our “I’d Rather Bee Reading” bee!

Kevin Luthardt has written and illustrated numerous picture books including Mine!, Larabee, Peep!, and Flying.

More than 100 entrants. Lots of fantastic ideas. Five designs selected. Congrats to Elizabeth (Grade 1 - Walker), Ethan (Grade 2 - Prospect), Avery (Grade 3 - Prospect), Renee (Grade 4 - Notre Dame) and Grace (Grade 5 - Prospect)! Bookmarks will be available in the Library by late May.
