Crete, IL – April 6, 2017. For the first time, the Crete Public Library District will host its own version of the TLC show “Say Yes to the Prom.” On Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., teens can select a prom dress in exchange for a canned goods item. Donations collected by the library will be given to the Crete Food Pantry. The library is located at 1177 Main Street in Crete.

Thanks to the generosity of the local community in bringing used prom dresses to the library, there are over 100 available, in a wide range of sizes and styles. Teens will be able to try dresses on before choosing. No pre-registration is necessary.  Teen Librarian Cassandra Ozouf chose to organize the “Say Yes to the Prom Dress” event as a way to help area families offset the high cost of prom.

For more information, please call the Crete Public Library at 708-672-8017.
