Library News

The Bookmobile will not stop by the 80th Avenue Metra station this Friday, October 24.
If you have any library items to return you may use our new and improved drive-up book drops on the east side of the building!

Once again we are offering you an opportunity to explore all kinds of new information sources, most of which you cannot normally access freely online. Through November 30, we encourage you to try any number of these databases through the annual Try-It! Illinois program run by the Illinois State Library. There's a database for everyone and every interest. We encourage you to "comparison shop," and let us know what you think, as your opinions do influence our own annual database subscription decisions.
