Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When a library opens its doors, it’s opening up opportunity, knowledge and, ultimately empowerment.  One-hundred year ago, the LaSalle Public Library opened its doors, giving people a chance to travel wherever their imaginations could take them.  That’s more than just public service, that’s changing lives.

Journey From The Heart

Join us at the LaSalle Public Library in a celebration of Native American History month, when Dennis Swiftdeer Paige presents a family program about many aspects of native North American cultures, underscoring the link these cultures provide between nature and human society. Colorful and captivating, Swiftdeer presents circle dances, animal impressions, stories, songs, drumming, and sharing of the Medicine bag. Ancient wisdom coupled with humor of the First Nations will inspire, inform and engage the audience.

This is a free program, open to the public; it is recommended for children over the age of 6 years and their families. Registration is not required but always appreciated! Funding for this program was made possible by District 122 LaSalle Schools. The LaSalle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette, LaSalle, Illinois.
