Celebrate the Tolono Public Library District’s 50th Anniversary (1969-2019)

The Library turns 50 this year! Help us celebrate our Golden 50th Anniversary this summer. There are three ways for you to take part in the celebration:

Add Photos to Our Memory Wall

Share your favorite library picture on our Memory Wall at the library. Email pictures to bmiller@tolonolibrary.org, or stop by the library, and the staff will make a color copy of your photo to add to the memory wall.

Earn Golden Raffle Tickets for our Golden Anniversary

Every golden raffle ticket you earn is a chance to win one of five gift baskets to be given away at our 50th Anniversary Party. Each week, from May 6th to July 28th, you can earn tickets by checking out books, attending events, or by doing fun things—like wearing red, white, and blue during the week of July 4th. See a full list of all the opportunities to earn golden raffle tickets here.

Attend our 50th Anniversary Party

Join us on Sunday, July 28, 2019 from 1 to 4 p.m. for our 50th Anniversary Party, featuring music, light refreshments, and several mini-programs throughout the day. More information about the party will be available in the coming weeks, so check back here on occasion.
