National Library Week is over, but we haven't forgotten those wonderful photos of our friends taken at the "Discover Tinley" expo! It was amazing how you found hundreds of unique ways to "love your library" in three words!

On Wednesday, April 30 we are hosting two special events spotlighting organ and tissue donation in Illinois.
Representatives from the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Program will be in our lobby from 3-6pm providing information and registration materials.
At 7pm, author of The Reluctant Donor and living organ donor Suzanne Ruff will share the heartwarming story of donating a kidney to her sister.

Talking Points

Suzanne Ruff, author of The Reluctant Donor and Chicago native, returns to the library on April 30 for our Donate Life Month event. Last year she regaled us with her tales of life, love, and self discovery. Suzanne left us in both laughter and tears, as she related her story of donating her kidney to her sister JoAnne who was suffering from a genetic disease.

So, please join us Wednesday, April 30 at 7:00pm as we welcome Suzanne Ruff back to Tinley Park Public Library. Seating is limited and going quickly, so be sure to register today!

When selecting a movie for your whole family to enjoy, including everyone from your youngest child to grandma and grandpa, relying on the MPAA guidelines is not always sufficient. After all, there are many different reasons why a film may receive a PG or PG-13 rating, and not all of it may align with what you deem to be suitable for your family to view.
