Library Madness 2017 Tournament

 A friendly little competition to see whose community Library check-outs the most materials in an effort to promote people coming into their library.  Initial pairings set by a radom drawing (bracket posted below). The winner from each week will advance to the next round. Only physical materials (books, magazines, DVD, Audiobooks, cake pans) will count.  No Ebooks (like Overdrive, Zinio or other e-only checkouts).

Week 2
(March 20-March 24)
We are playing in an exhibition game against Fairbury Public Library…
Come in check out books and movies!

(Overdrive and other Ebooks do not count)
