Children 12 and under can join the fun at a carnival upstairs in the Rasmussen Room. They will receive tickets to play each game once, have their faces painted and pick a prize. There also will be a wandering magician and a book walk.

A free concert by Fast Eddie and the Corvettes will run from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the Audiovisual Theatre, concentrating on popular music of the 1960s in recognition of the library's founding in 1962.

The movie "The Music Man," also appropriate for all ages, will be shown in the Audiovisual Theatre at 5 p.m.

Adults and teens are invited to visit the information tables in the lobby to learn more about the library and pick up some fun giveaways.

All are welcome to participate in the watering can fundraiser, with proceeds going to the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry. The uniquely decorated metal watering cans will be displayed in the lobby. Tickets may be purchased for a donation of 50 cents each from the check-in desk.

No admission fee or registration is required for any of the events and activities during the anniversary celebration.
