Step Up the Plate 2012Step Up to the Plate @ your library

Two American classics–baseball and libraries–meet in this contest for all ages!

June 4-September 8, visit the Step Up to the Plate website for a weekly baseball trivia question. You will have one week to answer the question.  If you get stuck, visit us for help!

All correct answers submitted each week will be entered into a weekly drawing for a prize package from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. Each Monday, the week's winners will be posted on the @ your library Facebook page, and winners will be notified through the email address provided on the entry form.

Remember to come back each week to answer a new question.  Every correct answer increases your chances of winning the grand prize: a trip for two to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum to attend the World Series Gala and a behind the scenes tour of the museum and archives in October 2012!

When you complete your weekly contest entry form, be sure to include the following library information.

Local History

Did you know that WPL has an online index of the Lake Shore News & Wilmette Life? We're also very excited that the 1940 Census has been released.
