Lisle Library District has raised the funds to install a LiteZilla in the Youth Services department upon completion of the library's major renovation (early 2023).

Community members and local organizations generously donated to procure this exciting, educational and engaging feature.

 

"I am delighted about having a feature that not only encourages individual creativity, but also inspires artistic collaboration. The LLD is deeply grateful for the community's support via individual donations and the generous donations from distinguished organizations within the community. A lot of credit goes to the LLD Advocacy and Outreach Committee for a very thoughtful fundraising effort. We cannot wait for the renovation to be complete and for the big reveal," said Tatiana Weinstein, director.

The JCS Arts, Health, and Education Fund Grant was awarded to the library by the DuPage Foundation.

Donations were also made by Lisle Woman's Club, Friends of the Lisle Public Library District, Lisle Library District Foundation, Giant Steps, Home Pride Services, and an assortment of individual donors. All donors will be publicly recognized via a plaque once the LiteZilla is installed.

LiteZilla is akin to a giant Lite Brite with large pegs suited for kids of all ages and abilities. The 6-foot by 5-foot installation will be a permanent feature that promotes STEAM skills in a fun and illuminating way.

The library is located at 777 Front St. Its mission is to enhance the cultural, social, and lifelong educational development of the community and the LiteZilla certainly aligns with that mission.
