The Adult Services Department provides high-quality materials, programs, and library services for adults ages 18 and older. We offer a diverse collection of books, audiobooks, music, magazines, and movies in both physical and digital formats. We strive to connect patrons with enriching materials through helpful reader’s advisory for both books and A/V materials.

Our year-round programming schedule includes a wide variety of programs on a range of current topics—we offer everything from historical lectures and healthcare presentations to DIY crafts and Trivia Night at the Lake Bluff Brewing Company.
