North Riverside Library Room Dedication

On Saturday, February 5, 2011 the North Riverside Public Library dedicated its youth reading room.  

The room was recently decorated with a 360 degree mural design by a teacher and students from St. Mary's School in Riverside, IL.  The funds for this room were due to the work of Lodge R.T. Crane Jr. #7 during our 2009 National Project which was dedicated to the betterment of the North Riverside Public Library.
