Holds Shelf Moved

To preserve patron privacy, we're moving our holds shelf out of public view. Ask for your reserved books, movies, music, and other library materials at the Library Services Desk.

Catalog Updates

Tomorrow morning, in the wee hours of March 21st between 3:00 and 9:00 AM, our catalog will be down while it undergoes some updates. You might notice some changes to the catalog before then. During the downtime, you will be unable to search for library items, place holds, or access your account. We apologize for any inconvenience. Hopefully you'll be asleep then.

Tax Time

We have requested forms from the IRS and expect them to arrive by February 12th. While we're waiting for shipments, links to printable versions of some of the most requested forms have been collected on our dedicated tax page.

Urban Exploration Canceled

Our Urban Exploration program this Sunday, January 28th, has unfortunately been canceled. The flu has taken it's toll on Adam Selzer and he will be unable to tell us all about the history of Chicago's underground and abandoned places. Check back for a rescheduled date soon.

Girls Who Code

We’re looking for girls in grades 6–12 who want to learn computer science skills and join a supportive sisterhood of thousands of coding girls across the country. No experience necessary! 
Come every Thursdays, February 1st –April 5th from 6:00–8:00 PM to learn how to code and change the world.

Landscaping the Library

This week you'll see some landscapers beginning to work around the library. Some of our trees and shrubs have gotten a bit unruly. They look bad and cause sight line safety issues in the parking lot so they need to be replaced Early fall is a good time to plant because the cooler weather and autumn rains put less stress on young plants. So, please bear with us, this work is going to lead to a beautiful spring.
