Stop by the Harnish Main Library gallery in March to view the intricate creations of Jennifer and Peter Lilliebridge. This creative couple has experience in graphic design, illustration, advertising, and printing. AAPLD is pleased to display the cross-stitch patterns they’ve designed.
The Lilliebridges have also been involved in logo creation for various companies, including District 300. That logo features the silhouetted figures of their family members. The couple often designs custom cards, photo slide shows, and illustrations, as well a creative home and holiday party displays for family and friends.
“Our interests and talents have carried over to our children, and they seem to thrive on the process of creating art as well,” notes Jennifer.
We make it easier for high school students to access what they need to succeed! With our Limited Access and Digital Access cards, students ages 14-17 can sign up for their own card on their own time. Just complete an application and provide photo identification with verification of address in the form of a driver’s license, driver’s permit and school ID, or school ID and other address verification. These cards do not require the signature of a parent or legal guardian and will expire when the cardholders turn 18 years old.
Limited Access: This card allows the student to check out and access items from both the digital and physical collection, with a limit of 3 physical items (books, DVDs, games, etc.) charged to the card at any time.
Digital Access: Perfect for the student who wants to use the library 24/7, this card provides access only to digital materials, such as e-books, e-audiobooks, digital music, streaming movies, research databases, learning resources, and other digital sources.
The Library’s resources can help students with their research, college testing preparation, computer skills, and more. On the (free) entertainment side, we have books, DVDs, audiobooks; downloadable books, magazines, and music; as well as streaming movies. Libraries also offer something that no online service can: librarians! Our friendly staff can help students find the information they need and teach them how to select the appropriate resource for their assignments.

The Algonquin Area Public Library District mourns the passing of Lynn Hammerlund, President of the Board of Trustees. Too soon we lost a passionate advocate for libraries, an avid supporter of AAPLD, and a strong champion of Library staff. Lynn’s 28 years of service on the Board is highlighted by her role as president for 23 years. She was named an Illinois Library Association Library Luminary in 2013.
Lynn was employed as a catalog librarian for more than 30 years at Judson University, where she was also an associate professor. She served on Judson’s General Education Committee; scored the men’s and women’s basketball games; was a faculty sponsor of Alpha Lambda Delta; appeared in Godspell and Fiddler on the Roof; took voice lessons and participated in voice recitals. In August of 2015, she received Judson’s Christ-like Servant Award in honor of her generous spirit.
Please join us in extending condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed. She is missed already.
