The Friends of the Wauconda Area Library are proud to sponsor the Complaint Free Community Initiative, including a visit from bestselling author Will Bowen. Mr. Bowen’s first book, A Complaint Free World, is the inspiration for our 21-day complaint-free challenge, beginning October 1.

 

We invite everyone to “go purple” while striving to eliminate complaint – at least for a few weeks. Beautiful things can happen when we distance ourselves from negativity. Give it a try! You’ll be amazed at the results. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the library and for purchase throughout the community. in the coming weeks, visit the library’s website for more information about the Initiative, including dates/locations of book discussions and when/ where you will be able to get the purple “Complaint Free World” bracelets.

  

Will Bowen @ Wauconda High School
Tuesday, October 28
at 7 p.m.


This event is open to the public, but tickets will be required. Tickets can be obtained at the library and Bliss Wine & Gifts. We are asking for donations of school supplies instead of charging for tickets. Supply lists will be available on the library’s website.  www.wauclib.org/complaintfreeworld.asp


Wauconda has partnered with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County to provide more recycling opportunities. The Wauconda Textile Recycling Bin was delivered on Friday, April 18th.  The bin is located at Public Works adjacent to the electronics recycling bin.  

 

It is estimated that nearly 85% of all clothing and textiles end up in landfills in the U.S. today. Textile and clothing waste is a significant problem in our country. It is estimated that anywhere from 5-10% of all waste that is sent to municipal landfills is comprised of textiles. Let's do our part to recycle these clothing items and save our landfill space.
