But the second Open Elgin Day on Saturday afternoon, April 21, will open the insides of almost three dozen other buildings -- many of them normally closed to the public -- for free tours.

Slowik: Riverdale library open again after 4-month closure, but money woes and finger-pointing continue

Harris told me in 2016, Jackson proposed moving the library to a dilapidated former resource center on the edge of town at 222 E. 135th Place. She said she presented Jackson’s proposal to the library board, which rejected it.

    Slowik: Riverdale library open again after 4-month closure, but money woes and finger-pointing continue
    There's some finger-pointing and blaming going on in Riverdale about why the town's public library shut its doors for nearly four months. The mayor and some residents accuse library officials of fiscal irresponsibility. Library officials say they're doing their best and accuse the mayor of not doing enough to attract businesses that would help generate tax revenue to sustain operations.
