A unique spaceship has landed at the Glencoe Library. It is on display for all to see on the library’s second floor in the Children’s Department.

The unusual item is the creative genius of Glencoe librarian Susan Schober.

“It is called Spaceship WRC,” said Finstad, head of Glencoe Library’s Children’s Department. “The WRC stands for the library’s Winter Reading Club, which is space-themed this year.”

The gray skies opened up and the rain fell as Karen Kristoff and Beth O’Harra drove into Glencoe on Thursday, April 9. 

By Saturday, April 11, the skies were clearer, the temperature in the low 60s — a perfect day for a wedding. 

O’Harra and Kristoff, both 45, drove from Lebanon, Ohio, to Glencoe for their marriage ceremony at Glencoe’s St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church, 556 Vernon Ave. The wedding was the first same-sex marriage held at the church. (Same-sex marriage in Illinois only became legal in June 2014.)

Since 2005, the North Shore Chess Club has been meeting at the local Starbucks in Glencoe once a week from 7-9 p.m. to enjoy good conversation and fun chess games in a laid-back atmosphere.

Every Wednesday, the small group of seven drops in for both regular and fast chess games played at one or two of the long tables next to the windows. The club does not hold tournaments, but the games are competitive and fun. No fee is required to join and members can even bring their own chess sets.
