Kudos to our public library, to the village government's Community Relations Commission and to curator Lynn Allen for their fruitful collaboration to find a new home for the Multicultural Center. A critical creation by the District 97 public elementary schools several decades back, this remarkable collection was in danger of losing a physical home when the schools needed its space at Percy Julian Middle School for classrooms.

Allen has long been the center's most enthusiastic advocate. Then the commission took up the challenge and found a willing partner in the library. The center is now in place and open to the public at the Dole Library branch on Augusta. This is an outstanding solution that actually brings the collection to a more public setting than ever before.
