Borrow a Mac!

The Adult and Youth Services Reference Desks now lend MacBook Air laptops for in-library use.

These laptops are great for many projects, but you might also just want to browse the Web in a quiet corner of the library. Please visit one of the Reference Desks for details!

Preserve your Past

You may use the newly opened Conversion Station to convert your old analog media into modern digital formats.
Digitizing is a great way to preserve and get more use out of the media you already own.

We support the following formats:

  • VHS
  • Audio cassettes
  • 45 and 33⅓ vinyl records
  • 35mm film & slides
  • 8mm cassettes
  • Negatives
  • Photographs
  • Documents

New Year, New Local Author Collection

We are excited to announce that beginning in January 2016 we are unveiling our new Local Author Shelves.
We will feature fiction and nonfiction books written for children, teens, and adults by authors from Tinley Park and neighboring communities.
Come check out what your friends and neighbors have written! The new shelves will be located behind the Adult Reference Desk on the Main Level and near the elevator upstairs.

*Update* Local authors are invited to submit their work for inclusion in the collection. Details are available on our Special Collections page.

Simple Simon

We have a self-serve scan station on the Main Level near the photocopiers. Using a touchscreen monitor, you may scan documents, books, and pictures, directly to a USB drive, email address, your Google Drive, & more. There is no charge for scanning. This device can also send outgoing faxes at the library’s current rates. Fax confirmation is available only via email when using the scan station.
