January Events


Friday January 26, from 6 to 8 pm

For 7th and 8th graders only

Come out for a night of fun at the Franklin Grove Public Library

We will provide "Wreck the Journals" and have pizza as we work on the journal together. You do not need to bring anything but yourself, as this is a free event. The only thing we ask is that you do sign up ahead of time so we know how many journals to order.

Sign-up sheets are at the front desk, or you can call the library to sign up as well. You must sign up to attend!

Sorry, no walk ins.

Any questions, please call Winifred Knox Memorial Library at 815-456-2823
