December 5: Chicago Bus Trip
Take a chartered bus to downtown Chicago with the Friends of the Crown Point Library! Participants will have the option to be dropped off/picked at State Street near Macy’s or the Water Tower Place on Michigan Avenue. This is not a tour and participants will be on their own throughout the day.
The trip is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5 and the cost for the round trip ride to Chicago is $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased at the Crown Point Library beginning November 1. The bus will leave the Crown Point Sportsplex promptly at 9:00 a.m. and depart from Chicago at 4:00 p.m. There will be no refunds after December 1. The trip is a great way to enjoy the City without the worry of traffic or parking! Bring a friend and enjoy a ride to downtown Chicago.
Meet The Friends
The Friends of the Crown Point Community Library have supported special programs and help to purchase items not generally covered in the library’s regular operating budget. They have made it their mission to enhance and promote the use and enjoyment of the library.
When you join us, you’ll:
- Sponsor programs and literary initiatives for adults, children, and teens
- Enable lively cultural events that attract non-traditional library users
- Volunteer at Library events and book sales
- Support pro-library advocacy to government officials and the general public
Many Friends volunteer by helping with the monthly and annual book sales, fundraising, and promoting the library. In addition to membership dues, money raised from the Literary Luncheon and book sales support on-going adult, children, and teen events, provide prizes for summer reading programs and help purchase equipment not covered in the general budget.
As a member of the Friends of the Crown Point Library, you’ll be paid back in a thousand ways every year – with children’s smiles, the sincere appreciation of the library’s hardworking staff and the pure satisfaction of knowing you make a difference in your community!
