The Emerald Ash Borer is an exotic pest from Asia. It destroys the tissues in ash trees that conduct water and nutrients. Heavily infested trees will begin to die, usually near the top of the tree and progressing down the trunk.

The librarians of Mount Prospect and its Sister City, Sèvres, France, work cooperatively to create Book Crossing, an international, intergenerational reading program. The books selected for discussion, written by French and American authors, seek to spark a dialogue among different age groups, and to offer many ways to participate—with no need to speak French! Mount Prospect and Sèvres residents young and old are invited to read the books and then participate in both traditional and online discussions.
