Join us to learn some of the major moons of our Solar System. Hear about NASA's past, present, and future plans to explore them, including the upcoming Artemis program, which will land the first women and next man on Earth's moon. Interactive live chat featured as well as Q & A throughout the program.
To attend the event:
Go to www.youtube.com/mjguillette five minutes before the start time and look for the live event. Q and A will be available throughout each of the presentations.

Our south entrance was renovated this spring and summer, thanks to the generosity of Michael and Lisa Cudahy. The area has been converted into a beautiful Irish cottage garden, complete with a statue of our city's founder, Patrick Cudahy, as a young boy sitting with his Grandpa Shaw. We are excited and grateful!  Follow the progress of the project by clicking here.

driving tests 2

Cudahy Family Library announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.
