Library offers readers a winter break challenge

SYCAMORE - While the weather outside may be frightful, the library is delightful and filled with opportunities to keep you warm and busy over the holiday break.

The Winter Challenge runs from Dec. 21 through Jan. 6, and is open to readers of all ages. With every entry, participants are entered to win a Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet, courtesy of the Friends of the Sycamore Library.

Participants read for two hours (120 minutes), discover something new (attend a library program, use the library databases, borrow and play with snap circuits), and create something fun (write a book review, make a Peeps diorama, knit, crochet, or make a photograph). Each time the three parts are completed fill out the form and enter it for a chance to win.

For all of the details of the Winter Challenge, check out the library website,, contact the staff at 815-895-2500 ext. 31, or email

The Sycamore Library is located at 103 E. State St. in Sycamore, and offers books, music, movies, ebooks, wireless Internet and more.
