Hops & History: Bootleggers, Bandits & Bathtub Gin. What was Prohibition like in Lake Bluff? The 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution banned alcohol nationwide from 1920 to 1933, but that didn’t stop the liquor train throughout the country or in Lake Bluff. Part of the Museum’s History & Hops series, this event will be led by Lake Bluff History Museum co-founder Kathy O’Hara on August 16 from 6-8 pm, most appropriately at Lake Bluff Brewing Company. Tickets are available on the Museum’s website.


CROYA News. CROYA will be closed August 14 to 18. After school drop-in hours begin Wednesday, August 23.


Storytime on the Green. During the month of August, the Lake Bluff Library is coming to the Farmers Market on the Village Green at 9 am. Stop by for storytime or visit the book bike to check out materials to take home.
