Human Chain Moves Last Book to New Library

About 650 people lined up on a two-mile route for a ceremonial move of the last book from the old Tinley Park (IL) Public Library to the new one. The book that made the journey was “The Library,” a children’s story. Retired Tinley Park librarian Mary Lou Seery who had the honor of being the first in the chain commented

If you think about what a library costs in taxes, it’s minimal in comparison to the resources that you get for it. The people who work here are dedicated and work for less money than they could make in the private world. On the whole, I think that libraries are the most important resource we have.
