Huntley, IL – The Huntley Area Public Library was honored to receive a donation from the Huntley Area Lions Club in the amount of $1000.00. The donation was presented to the library by Jim Saletta and Jim Graves of the Lions Club in honor of American disability rights advocate Helen Keller. Keller influenced Lions Club members to join her and continue her crusade as Knights of the Blind. Helping the visually impaired has been a cause for the group since 1925.
Beginning June 13, read one chapter a day with Huntley 158 and representatives from community organizations all across Huntley, Lake in the Hills, and Algonquin. Along the way, families can gather golden tickets and practice skills to enhance literacy at home, all while revisiting the magical, fantastical story of Charlie Bucket and Willy Wonka! Students, the library is one of the Golden Ticket locations.
