Have you ever turned off your tv, computers, video games - all your screens for two weeks or even a day?  Now you’ll have the chance along with your friends, neighbors and other community members from April 3 - 17th to reduce screen use in your home and participate in screen-free activities in our tri-communities (Forest Park, River Forest, Oak Park).

Get involved NOW by attending a planning meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, January 25th at 1 pm at the River Forest Library at 735 Lathrop, River Forest.  Parents, preschools, PTOs, community members - your input and participation are needed.  For more information contact:  Ellen Cutter 708-366-5205 x312 ellen.cutter@riverforestlibrary.org 

Allow yourself the opportunity to experience screen-free living and see the difference in your day-to-day life.  For more information visit:  http://tvtuneoutweek.wordpress.com/
