Things are continuing to change at Eisenhower. We’re creating a new teen space, expanding study rooms, and continuing to offer exceptional programming. In fact, our programming is so successful that programs fill up and people often find themselves on waiting lists.
That’s why residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights will now be able to register for programs a week before anyone else. This is in keeping with other changes we’ve made over the last couple of years; Eisenhower Exclusives, digital resources, and exemption from overdue fines are all benefits that are only available to our residents. Once August 8th arrives, everyone else will be able to sign up for programs but until then, program registration is available exclusively to residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights.
As with any change, there are a few things we will all have to get used to:
- We’ll be verifying residency during that first week by requiring an Eisenhower Public Library card; resident cards have a unique prefix, which allows us to distinguish these from others. Signing up for a card is easy. If you don’t have one, just make sure to bring an ID with your current address or a utility bill.
- We won’t be able to accommodate online registration during that first week. You’ll need to either stop in or call. Make sure to have your library card number handy.
- You’ll need to pay any program fees during that week; if you don’t pay, you won’t be officially registered.
We want residents of Norridge and Harwood Heights to have every opportunity to enjoy everything the library has to offer. We hope you take advantage of this latest benefit and discover something new at your library.
