Blood Drive w/ Heartland Blood Center

Saturday, July 22, 2017

10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The library is teaming up once again with Heartland Blood Center to help save lives this summer! All donors will receive a Target gift card and students ages 17-21 can enter the Students Saving Lives Scholarship program! They will have the opportunity to win one of five $1,000 scholarships if they donate. Eligible family and friends may also donate on behalf of a student. However, if the student does not fulfill one successful donation during the program period (June 1—August 31, 2017), the family/friends contest entry will become invalid. Every blood donation offered in the student’s name will qualify for an entry in the drawing and a better chance of winning!

To schedule your donation, please call or text Heartland Blood Center representative Camille Piazza at (847) 305-9998, sign up in person at the library, or online at Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome! Donations will be made in the Heartland Mobile Coach in the library parking lot.

Remember to eat a hearty breakfast and come hydrated before making your donation! You must be 16 years or older to donate blood.

For additional information, go to or contact Samantha at or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 1701.
