Program Description

Celebration of Culture

These events acknowledge holidays and other occasions that are valued in our community.

By including these days, we hope that you

  • see your diversity mirrored on our calendar
  • feel like we are taking your beliefs and observances into account with our programming
  • become aware of occasions valued by other members of the community
  • appreciate the diversity of our community

This effort, as well as others to come, are the result of our participation in the Glen Ellyn DEI Project meetings and listening sessions. The library is committed to furthering our commitment to understanding and meeting the needs of our community.
