FOX RIVER GROVE – The Fox River Grove Memorial Library, 407 Lincoln Ave., plans a number of programs and events during March and April.

• “Spring Tune Up” at 7 p.m. Wednesday: During this free program, master gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension Program will answer questions about starting a garden or enhancing an existing garden.

• National Library Week: Bring in nonperishable food during National Library Week as payment for library fines. Each can or box of unexpired food will be worth $1 credit toward library fines. Up to $25 per library card will be credited. Credit may be used only for fines, not replacement costs or processing fees.

The food will be donated to the Cary-Grove Food Pantry.

• Spring Book Sale: Find deals on books, CDs and DVDs at the Friends of the Library Spring Book Sale.

The sale will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 25 and April 26, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 27. Donations for the book sale will be accepted during library hours through April 24. Volunteers to help with the sale are welcome. The library is unable to accept donations of encyclopedias, magazines or textbooks. Proceeds will fund the CGHS scholarships offered to Fox River Grove graduating seniors.
