Keri Doors System Hardware

We have the Access Control System in a metal box, a Von Duprin Power Supply board in a metal box, and a third metal box with the backup power supply for the doors (can hold a battery, but I don't have that).  We also have some extra boards, 1-LAN card and 1-Satellite Board.  I have the User's Guide printed off.  I have the disc for the software, version 5.20 (I'm not sure if that is the latest version or not).  We bought the system in 2007 and just replaced it with something else.

Will take best offer.  Must pick up at Antioch Public Library District.

Waukegan Public Library Celebrates the Day of the Child

On Sunday, May 4 from 1 to 3 p.m., the Waukegan Public Library will bring the characters and stories from some of the best loved children’s books to life. The library’s annual El Dìa de los Niños/El Dìa de los Libros family festival will feature games and activities from classic and contemporary children’s books like "The Hunger Games", "Mary Poppins", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Winnie the Pooh".

With a specific focus on books that were made into movies, children can become their favorite characters and practice for the hunger games with archery, darts, and knot tying, they can hunt for clues around the library like Nancy Drew, make a mask of one of the characters in Winnie the Pooh, and toss rings on Pinocchio’s growing nose. Families will also have a chance to explore the Early Learning Center Transportation exhibit and go for a ride in a caboose, fly a plane, and ride a bike.

Kirby the Kangaroo, the Great Lakes Credit Union's mascot, will greet children along with Shrek and other well-known book characters. Each family will sample fresh made ice cream from La Michoacana Ice Cream parlor and take home free books.

Since summer is on its way, adults and children can also sign up for the Summer Reading Club to win prizes for reading during June, July, and August. Each child who signs up will take home a Waukegan Public Library reading t-shirt, while supplies last.

“In the past, our El Dia celebrations incorporated themes surrounding the environment, Earth Day, and Latino culture. This year, we placed the focus on books so children can relate to the classic stories they love through hands-on play,” said executive director Richard Lee. “Hopefully this will inspire families to interact with books in a fun and creative way at home.”

Last year, the library’s El Dia event received a $500 honor award from Estela and Raúl Mora for an exemplary culminating celebration of El Dìa de los Niños/El Dìa de los Libros. Sponsors for this year’s event include La Michoacana Ice Cream, the Great Lakes Credit Union, and Words on Wheels.
