Employment at Will
Illinois is an “Employment at Will” state. This means that an employee’s position may be terminated by an employer without providing a reason. This does not mean that there was not a reason for the termination; it just means that a reason does not have to be stated.
Employee records are generally kept confidential to protect the employee. Although it is not illegal to provide prospective employers with information in an employee’s record, it is advisable not to do so unless a release has been signed by the former employee. One exception would be if the employee were to post information on public forums (i.e. social networking sites) as that information has already been made public by the employee.
We had a great turnout today for the color run. Thank you to all who participated and to our generous sponsors. We cannot wait to see everyone at our other summer events. We will keep you posted on our Dodge ball and Kickball Tournaments so stay tuned for more information.
Come and run to help kick-start the Manhattan-Elwood Public Library District’s 2013 Summer Reading Program!

So wear something you don’t mind getting “artistically altered”, and a pair of sunglasses for good measure!

Due to the overwhelming generosity of our library patrons, we have reached our goal of 20,000 plastic bags in record time. The T-REX Company, impressed by our progress, has promised us an additional bench if we manage to collect another 35,000 by October 1st and we are well on our way. Please continue to support our cause to allow us to provide a cozy place to read outside for both our children and adult patrons. We are floored by your kindness and want you to know that we truly appreciate all your help.
This month, in honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day, support the library’s project to reuse and recycle. From the materials of 20,000 plastic bags, Trex Co. can make our library a wonderful outdoor reading bench. Thanks to the generosity of our patrons, we are halfway toward our goal and we appreciate your continued help in our efforts. So bring in those bags!

This is Benni our library lab.
She is only 5 months old now but when she grows up, she wants to work at the library to help children practice their reading with a cuddly buddy. To be the best puppy she can be, she goes to school every Tuesday at the Petsmart in Mokena and then stops by the library from 1-9 to visit and practice all she has learned with the children in town.
Please help us in letting Benni feel welcome by stopping by and visiting her, she just loves to meet new people!
