Skokie Public Library is 92 years old today. 🎂

Our library opened on February 8, 1930, operating at only 10 hours per week, and we had 1,000 donated books to circulate.

We’ve seen a lot of changes over the years, but we’ve always led with serving our community.

A productive week #InTheDistrict for #TeamRam! ✅ I met with John M.
