Cook Library to host outdoor
The Cook Memorial Public Library District will host an end-of-summer concert featuring singer/songwriter Dave Rudolf on Aug. 14 in Cook Park. The interactive family show will begin at 6:30 p.m. on the Cook Mansion steps. Admission is free.
Rudolf, who is from the Chicago area, is not only a singer and a songwriter but also a children’s book author who has entertained families and children with his wit and musical talent for more than 20 years. In addition to Rudolf’s original music and fun-in-the-sun favorites, there will be hula hoops, beach balls, a conga line, limbo, bubble machines and other activities.
provides crime data online
The Mundelein Police Department announces that citizens can now gain access to neighborhood-level crime incident data in near real time.
The public can access the free crime data through www.CrimeReports.com or through the CrimeReports iPhone app, available as a free download at Apple iTunes stores. Citizens sign up for free customized e-mail updates so they can monitor crime in their neighborhood.
“Information is power,” said Mundelein Police Chief Raymond Rose. “We hope that giving the community this information will help them understand crime trends and lower crime in their neighborhoods.”
