Huntley High School will open its newly renovated football stadium to the community Friday, as part of the second annual Red Raider Sports Kickoff event.
Students, parents, staff and Huntley High football fans can watch the school's Red and Black squads scrimmage each other on the newly installed synthetic turf from 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, at the refurbished football stadium, 13719 Harmony Rd. Attendees can again watch prep football, win prizes and enjoy the concessions.
People interested in attending the scrimmage are being asked to bring one personal item, such as toothpaste, shampoo, paper towels, as an admission fee. The items will be donated to the Grafton Township Pantry. People are also encouraged to show-off their "Red Raider pride," which is the theme for this year's kickoff event.
The Huntley Area Public Library re-opened its doors Tuesday after installing new carpet for patrons.
The new carpeting and express checkout lanes were added two days ahead of schedule. The library closed on Aug. 12 to allow construction crews to move the library's book shelves and install the new carpeting.
The new carpet covers the library's main area. A portion of the $55,975 project was paid through a grant from the Illinois Secretary of State's office, which manages the state library system.
"Even though work continues on the renovation of the checkout area, the library staff worked tirelessly to ensure we could re-open as soon as possible to serve the community," Library Director Patrick McDonald said in a news release.
A photo gallery and video of the carpeting and checkout area can be viewed on the library's website, www.huntleylibrary.org.
