A meeting of the Village of Peoria Heights Historical Society will be held on Wednesday, March 19, at 6:30 pm at Oliver’s Pizza. Come share your memories and help organize future efforts.
DO YOU REMEMBER?
Matarelli Grocery, Different Drummer, Fancy That, The Penguin, The Strawberry Patch, Ben franklin, Walen's Tap, Heights Bowl.
What do these places have in common? At one time, they were all businesses in Peoria Heights. The library has a display of articles and items from these and other businesses along Prospect Road over the past decades. Stop by during March and April to take a trip down memory lane.
SUCCESSFUL BASKET RAFFLE
Thanks to the many generous donors who created 29 wonderful baskets and to the numerous people who bought tickets, this year’s basket raffle raised $1,772 for the library’s Summer Reading Club activities and materials. A list of the lucky basket winners is available at the Circulation Desk and on our Facebook page. Congratulations!
Volunteers from AARP will be at the library to offer free tax assistance each Wednesday and Thursday from noon–4 pm. This service begins Feb. 5 and will continue until April 10. A number system of first come, first served, is in place and the numbers are put out at 9am each Wednesday and Thursday for assistance that starts at noon.
