Beyond the Bookshelves: Read with Rusty and earn ticket to hockey game

We’re excited to partner with the Chicago Steel, a United States Hockey League team that plays at the Fox Valley Ice Arena in Geneva, to promote a love of reading, literacy and hockey.

Read with Rusty encourages children ages 14 and younger to read 20 minutes each weekday from Oct. 7 to Dec. 15 – for a recommended total of 1,000 minutes. Students who reach the reading goal will receive a complimentary ticket to a Chicago Steel hockey game.

Pick up a reading log in youth services at the Geneva Public Library and get started today!

New library update

Architects are finalizing plans for the new library in order to submit them to the appropriate city agencies for review. These agencies include the Historic Preservation Commission, Plan Commission and Geneva City Council.

The 57,000-square-foot facility will offer community members a library with space for additional technology to learn new skills, expanded collections, more programs, on-site parking, drive-up convenience, and many more resources and services.

The goal is to start construction of a new building in spring 2018, with a prospective opening date in midyear 2019. Keep up with progress on new building plans at Please contact us any time at

A note from customer service

Stop by your library during downtown Geneva trick-or-treat hours from 2 to 5 p.m. Oct. 26. We love seeing all of our young friends in costume!

‘The Librarian Recommends’

Meredith Anderson, outreach librarian for information and reader services, said “The Dry” by Jane Harper is a must-read. “Long-buried mysteries and hidden secrets are like kindling in this dry Australian town. The unraveling of these chilling events will ignite the blaze. If you like intense mysteries, don’t miss this one!”

Paula Krapf is public relations and marketing manager for Geneva Public Library. The “Beyond the Bookshelves” column runs the third Thursday of each month. Feedback can be sent to
