Events For the Week of March 14

Every weekend I will post a list of local events, many of them free or very cheap, happening around DuPage. Be sure to check in here each weekend when planning the week ahead! For library events, I scour websites of all the DuPage libraries. It would be impossible to list every single story time and event, so I look for special events that are open to anyone, with or without a library card from that library. You should always look at the website for your town's library to find events open to you! (For some reason I couldn't find anything happening on Tuesday! I guess Tuesday is a sort of boring day!)

Enjoy your week!
