Lisle Library District to kick off 'Winter Read' Dec. 8

The Lisle Library District, 777 Front St., is hosting its annual Winter Read kickoff from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 8.

Festivities begin with live music from the Lisle High School jazz combo, holiday photo booth, a seasonal craft, reading recommendation stations, and a wintry storytime at 6 p.m.

Outdoors, attendees will enjoy live ice sculpting and cupcakes from the Courageous Bakery food truck (while supplies last).

"I can't wait to hear the high school jazz combo on Friday night. They always put on a festive show. Our youngest patrons will be thrilled to see their favorite turtles, Jack and Jill, sculpted from a block of ice," said Tatiana Weinstein, director. "And you really can't go wrong with cupcakes! This event is sure to get residents geared up for the holidays and for a season of reading."

The event follows the launch of the library's Winter Read, which begins Friday, Dec. 1 for all ages.

Adults who read and log two books will earn a soft winter scarf. Teens and children who complete weekly reading challenges will earn a very special holographic sticker.

Lisle residents can enter to win two Brookfield Zoo tickets. Winners will be selected by a random drawing and informed after Winter Read concludes on Friday, Jan. 12.
