About the Tri-City Library District

The Tri-City Library District selects, acquires, organizes and provides access to books, magazines, cds, dvds and other materials of interest and/or permanent value. These items provide for the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the surrounding areas users. The Library also promotes the importance and appreciation of reading and community involvement from childhood through adult programs.

The Tri-City Library District site also serves as a central repository and online community center. We want everyone to look beyond the books and see the library as an important resource in the Tri-City area.

DEWIE GORDON BENEFIT IN DECATUR, FEBRUARY 6, 2016

A benefit to raise money for Dewie to help with out-of-district tuition at Tri-City Schools will be held Saturday, February 6 at the AIW Hall in Decatur from 4 pm - midnight.  It will feature local bands, with a $10 admission for the bands and dinner.  There will also be a live auction, silent auction, alcohol walk, bake sale and a raffle.  Proceeds will go toward Dewie's education.  For more information, call David at 217-994-1175.  Donations can also be made at the Lincoln Land Credit Union in the name of Barbara Perdu. 

Dewie tragically lost his father Rob when he was swept into a river in Christian County on his way home from a concert in Taylorville during the flooding on December 29 and he had previously lost his mother to cancer.  He would love to finish his schooling at Tri-City High School even while living with his aunt.  This fundraiser should be a good start.
