We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter ~ January 15, 2015

Join us for our first Heyworth History program of 2015 at 6 p.m. in the Community Room on Tuesday, January 27.  We will be showing a video of the history of the local train that was a connective chain to Bloomington/Normal and surrounding areas for our village. The Interurban, as it was known, ceased operation in 1953. This transit system was a building block that helped Central IL grow into the economy and population that we are today. If you have any Interurban memorabilia, feel free to bring it and your memories to share.

Items we collect for our community:

  • Coupons for military families overseas
  • Gently used Heyworth Hornet Shirts/Sweatshirts and branded athletic gear
  • Box Tops for Education coupons/Campbell soup labels/Tyson Chicken product labels
  • Coca-Cola product bottle caps and reward coupons off of cases of Coca-Cola products
  • HP ink cartridges
  • Long wrapping paper cardboard tubes
