The Friends of the Dundee Library invites the community to take a moment to reflect during two programs in June that look back to the World War I and II eras.

On Tuesday, June 5, pause to honor the country's World War II vets at this special screening of the Academy Award-nominated documentary "D-Day Remembered" at 7 p.m. A Q-and-A session will follow, facilitated by 76-year-old Army veteran John Morrissy of Oak Park. The film is suitable for family viewing.

On Saturday, June 16, join "The Milwaukee Road in the Chicago Area Between the Wars" at 2 p.m. Watch yesteryear chug by as Ted Schnepf of Rails Unlimited in Elgin takes you on a journey around the Chicago area via the Milwaukee Road between World War I and World War II. A black and white video presentation shows the view out the window as depots, buildings and rural vistas fly by.

Both programs are free and will be presented in the lower-level meeting room of the library, 555 Barrington Ave. (Route 68) in East Dundee.

Registration is recommended. To register, visit the "Events & Registration" page at, stop by the Information Services desk on the main level or call (847) 428-3661, ext. 308. The Dundee Township Public Library District serves residents of Carpentersville, East Dundee, West Dundee, Sleepy Hollow, Gilberts and parts of Algonquin.
