Whether you are going to the dance or not, come spend some time being silly and decorating each others' nails at the Library! Nail polish, decorative stickers, buffers, and files will be provided. We even have books on how to braid hair, make your own nail polish, and how to make your own lotion if you want to do a fun activity together. If you have a young fella who is feeling left out, we got you! We will also have temporary hair color spray and stencils available so you can have some fun with the boys as well.  

Drop in anytime during the days and hours listed. You do not need to register for this program, but an adult is required to attend with the child/children.

Shelbyville Public Library is joining libraries across the state of Illinois to host a night with Danny Trejo.

Actor, author, and restaurateur Danny Trejo will discuss how he developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry with a hard-earned and atypical road to success. From years of imprisonment to helping troubled youth battle drug addictions, from acting to producing, and now on to restaurant ventures, Trejo’s name, face, and achievements are well recognized in Hollywood and beyond, but it is his continuous role as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction


Trejo has starred in dozens of films including Desperado, Heat, the From Dusk Til Dawn series, Con Air, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Spy Kids, and Machete. On the television side, he’s had recurring roles on Sons of Anarchy, King of the Hill, Breaking Bad, and The Flash, among others. He has also starred in and voiced various popular video games like Call of Duty, Fallout, and Grand Theft Auto, as well as voiced characters in the animated films Storks, The Book of Life, Minions 2: The Rise of Gru, and Maya and the Three.


He shared his love of food with the world in the release of his first cookbook Trejo’s Tacos: Recipes and Stories from LA. His fearlessly honest memoir Trejo: My Life of Crime, Redemption, and Hollywood was released in July 2021.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a new statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
