3 Week Checkouts Starting Nov. 2!
Need more time to finish with our books or TV shows? You asked and we listened! The Acorn Public Library District is pleased to announce that, starting November 2, 2015, our two-week standard loan period for books, audiobooks, periodicals, CDs, TV series, and nonfiction DVDs will be increased to three weeks. Please note that the three-week loan period will apply only to items checked out on or after November 2, 2015; it does not retroactively apply to items you may already have checked out.

Summer Reading Begins at Acorn!
Our Summer Reading Programs are open to all ages! Acorn offers programs for babies, children, teens, and adults. Registration for the program starts June 6, and you may register at any time throughout the program, ending on August 1. By reaching reading goals, children will earn prizes and strengthen literacy skills over the summer, earning prizes for every 5 hours or 20 books read. Teens will earn a raffle ticket for every 5 hours read good toward a variety of gift cards. Adults will earn a raffle ticket for every 350 pages read, good toward grand prize package drawings. We also have a variety of exciting events planned all summer long! For more information, view each program's brochure.
