Booked for the Day book discussion group
Booked For The Day will be meeting to discuss the nonfiction best seller "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. Henrietta Lacks' cells changed the course of science, and sparked a multi-million industry in human cell reproduction, but she, nor her family, ever knew about it because her cells were harvested without her knowledge. Follow the riveting tale of the HeLa cell, and Henrietta's family today.
All are welcome to attend the discussion of this book.

More About Lisle Library District
From magazines to interactive children's activities, the Lisle Library offers more than great reading material. Its collection includes more than 122,000 books, 350 magazine subscriptions, 12,000 audio materials, 11,000 DVDs and art prints. Patrons can take advantage of three quiet study rooms, copiers, computers, tables and dozens of modern orange chairs for comfortable reading. A meeting room is also available that includes a grand piano which employee Rhonda Shelson said, "every kid in 50 miles has played in recitals." (According to Snelson any Lisle Library cardholder can utilize the meeting rooms for non-commercial purposes, as long as it meets the library's criteria.)
The children's services center offers board games, video and computer games, graphic novels and craft programs. (Don't forget to say hello to the library's turtles and gerbils.)
The library sponsors four monthly book groups (all for different genres) and a film group. Visit its Facebook page for updates, event information and photos.
