Here's what's happening over at the Crystal Lake Public Library, 126 Paddock St., Crystal Lake:
Are you taller than Matt Forte, running back for the Chicago Bears? Stop by the Crystal Lake Public Library Youth Services Department to see for yourself.
The library has a life-sized poster of Forte, who stands 6-foot, 2-inches tall. Visitors can see how they size up next to the football star, and get a cool pic of themselves with the image (bring your own camera!).
