FORM.pdf

**Please check at the front desk to reserve a meeting room**

The Lillie M. Evans Library District has two meeting rooms.  Details about the size and capacity of each room are below. The primary purpose of the meeting rooms is to support library functions, meetings, and programs. The meeting rooms may, on occasion, be made available for use by members of the public.  Library sponsored programs receive first priority, after which other requests will be considered in the order in which they are received. The Library District reserves the right to revise any meeting arrangements scheduled if necessary and to preempt an established reservation upon reasonable notification. Organizations not affiliated with the Lillie M. Evans Library District may use the meeting room only when all of the following conditions are met:

  1. Requests for meeting room use must be made to the library staff in advance. An application for use may be filed up to 6 months in advance.
  2. The organization conducting the meeting is not doing so for the immediate or ultimate gain of a for-profit business or agency with the exception of meetings that are perceived by the Board or library director as furthering the mission of the library as stated in its mission statement.
  3. The meeting cannot be expected to disrupt the ability of the library to conduct its business in a normal and orderly manner.
  4. The meeting is open to the public.
  5. When reserving the meeting room for a non-library event, the reservation must be made by an adult resident of the library district. Reservations made for parties (birthdays, anniversaries, showers, etc.) must pay a $15 non-refundable fee at time of reservation and all conditions must be followed.
  6. The resident of the library district making the reservation assumes responsibility for security and damages to library property. A clean-up fee may be imposed on any group violating this requirement.
  7. The organization will be responsible for any advance preparation and room set-up and for leaving the facilities in the same order they were before the meeting.
  8. Alcohol, tobacco/vaping products, and controlled substances are prohibited. Due to insurance concerns, no inflatables (for example: bouncy houses) are allowed in meeting room spaces.
  9. Meetings may be held before or after regularly scheduled Library hours only when prior arrangement has been made and approval has been given.
  10. Library District audiovisual equipment may be available for use with proper advance request. Library staff is not available to operate equipment.
  11. In the event of a Library building emergency or weather-related emergency, meetings will be cancelled.
  12. Failure to comply with the terms of this policy could affect the future access of the organization or individual to the room.

Groups may appeal any decision of the Library District under this Meeting Room Policy to the Board of Trustees.  Such appeal shall be filed in writing with the Library Director within 10 days after notice of the decision is given to the group.  In the event of such appeal, the Board of Trustees may hold a hearing for the purpose of hearing evidence relevant to the appeal.  Within 30 days the Board of Trustees will make a final decision regarding the matter.

Library Garden

 

In 2023, the LME Library received a $20,000 grant to start an accessible community garden! Funds added an accessible sidewalk into the hosta garden and started a community garden. The LME Garden Adopt a Plot was well received and all beds have been reserved. However, feel free to check our pantry area in the LME Library for any abundant produce throughout the summer and fall!

 

 

The Lillie M. Evans Library started developing the library garden with Greenview Nursery during our expansion project in 2000. At that time, walkways were added to the center courtyard and flowers, trees and shrubs were planted to allow library users to enjoy our green spaces. This was then expanded along the west side of the building with a hosta garden. Many thanks to Mary and Jess Arnold for all their hard work to develop and maintain these areas. By providing an outdoor area for the community, the library offers a unique way to connect literacy, learning, and an appreciation for nature as a regular part of the library visit.

Entrance to hosta garden    Sedum in front garden    Courtyard garden

During our 2017 expansion, the library garden was extended all the way around the building. In addition to providing an appreciation of nature and access to a community green space, we wanted the garden to be a sustainable way that incorporates native plants while providing the four basic elements all living creatures (such as birds, butterflies and bees) require: food, water, cover and places to raise young.

 Resources

Young Naturalists Recently our Project Next Generation Young Naturalists have helped us develop a LME Library Garden Brochure. This brochure is available online or at the library and provides more information about our gardens and plants. Project Next Generation were awarded grants from the Illinois State Library using federal Library Services and Technology Act funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

JUST AS I AM (I COME BROKEN)

Verse 1

Just as I am without one plea

But that thy blood was shed for me

And that thou bidst me come to thee

O lamb of God I come, I come.

Verse 2

Just as I am and waiting not

To rid my soul of one dark blot

To thee whose blood can cleanse each spot

O lamb of God I come, I come.

Chorus

I come broken to be mended, I come wounded to be healed.

I come desperate to be rescued, I come empty to be filled.

I come guilty to be pardoned by the blood of Christ the Lamb.

And I’m welcomed with open arms, praise God just as I am.

Verse 3

Just as I am I would be lost,

But mercy and grace my freedom bought.

And now to glory in your cross,

O lamb of God I come, I come.

Chorus

I come broken to be mended, I come wounded to be healed.

I come desperate to be rescued, I come empty to be filled.

I come guilty to be pardoned by the blood of Christ the Lamb.

CORNERSTONE

Verse 1-2X

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.

I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly trust in Jesus’ name.

Verse 2

When darkness seems to hide his face, I rest on his unchanging grace.

In every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.

Chorus

Christ alone. Cornerstone. Weak made strong. In the Savior’s love.

Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all.

Verse 3

When he shall come with trumpet sound, oh may I then in him be found.

Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless stand before the throne.

Faultless stand before the throne.

Chorus-2X

Christ alone. Cornerstone. Weak made strong in the Savior’s love.

Through the storm, He is Lord. Lord of all.

JUST WAIT TILL HE STANDS UP

Verse 1

Jesus sits upon His throne, surrounded by the angels’ song.

For every hour of every day, somewhere on earth a soul is saved.

And as each sinner makes his choice, the angels loudly lift their voice.

In thunderous chorus they proclaim, Worthy, worthy is thy name!

Verse 2

If the angels loudly sing, each time a soul makes Jesus King.

The song in heaven never stops, its constant praise to the Lamb of God.

Yet very soon there’ll come a day when the angels will give louder praise.

Imagine what the sound will be when the Father says, Son it’s time to leave!

Chorus 2X

And when He stands up the heavens will roar with shouts of praise like never before!

The Father will say, my Son arise. The time has come, go get your bride.

The earth will shake with a trumpet blast, and all the saints will rise at last.

If you think heavens loud enough, just wait till He stands up!

If you think heavens loud enough just wait till He stands up!

EVERY KNEE WILL BOW

Verse 1

Wise men searched the midnight skies, saw the star and knew it was a sign

Of a King, fulfilling prophecies of old. So they brought him myrrh, frankincense, & gold.

And they fell and worshipped him. And the world should have known right then.

Every knee will bow. Even kings will fall.

 Every tongue confess, You are Lord. You are Lord of all.

Everyone will see. All will know somehow. Jesus Christ is Lord forevermore.

Someday in a day to come, we’ll be there to see the Holy one.

Every creature who has ever lived on earth will be humbled at the sight and lost for words.

Everyone will see. All will know somehow. Jesus Christ is Lord forevermore.

And every knee will bow.

Honor forever, you are worthy, worthy!

Worthy the Lamb who was slain. 2X At the sound of Your name.

Every knee will bow. Even kings will fall.

 Every tongue confess, You are Lord. You are Lord of all.

Everyone will see. All will know somehow. Jesus Christ is Lord forevermore.

And every knee will bow.

Every knee will bow. 4X

IN CHRIST ALONE

Verse 1

In Christ alone, my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

Verse 2

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
'Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live, I live

Verse 3

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

Verse 4

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

Verse 1

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

Chorus

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Verse 2

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Chorus

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD ABOVE

Verse 1

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea
A great High Priest whose name is love
Who ever lives and pleads for me

My name is graven on His hands
My name is written on His heart
I know that while in heav'n He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart
No tongue can bid me thence depart

Verse 2

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end to all my sin

Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me
To look on Him and pardon me

Verse 3

Behold Him there, the risen Lamb
My perfect, spotless Righteousness
The great unchangeable I Am
The King of glory and of grace

One with Himself, I cannot die
My soul is purchased by His blood
My life is hid with Christ on high
With Christ my Savior and my God

With Christ my Savior and my God

HOW DEEP THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US

Verse 1

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure!
That He should give His only Son,
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss!
The Father turns His face away;
As wounds which marred the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Verse 2

Behold the man upon a cross:
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life:
I know that it is finished.

Verse 3

I will not boast in anything:
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ:
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart:
His wounds have paid my ransom.

WONDERFUL, MERCIFUL SAVIOR

Verse 1

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb
Could rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Verse 2

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we've hopelessly lost the way

Chorus

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Verse 3

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne

Chorus

You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

HOW GREAT THOU ART

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder

Consider all the worlds thy hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, 

Thy power throughout the universe displayed. 

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;

When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then I shall bow in humble adoration, and there proclaim,

“My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

AMAZING GRACE

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me!  I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved, How precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed. 

The Lord has promised good to me, His word my hope secures, He will my shield and portion be as long as life endures.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we’d first begun.
