Think Library First

Oct. 15, 1-4 PM

You thought you were just dropping by to check out a couple of books, but somehow you and your friends wound up locked in a windowless room upstairs in the library. You have 15 minutes to solve the puzzles, find the clues, and escape… will you make it out in time? Open to teens only. Please register.


Need more books?

The Friends of the Library Fall Book Sale will be October 21, 22 and 24. Don't miss out on great deals on books, DVDs, and more! Click "calendar" below for more information.


Oct. 24, 6:30 PM

Take a walk or a tram ride in downtown Galesburg to visit historic locations and hear actors tell the stories of people from Galesburg’s past. Co-sponsored by the Galesburg Historical Society. Registration for the tram is required. Tram registration opens on October 1. Free and fun for all ages.
