If you’re planning on coming in on a weekend or evening, we recommend calling ahead to make sure that we have a registrar scheduled to be in.

Masks Required 8/30

Effective Monday, August 30, all patrons visiting the Library will be required to wear a mask, regardless of their personal vaccination status. This is in compliance with the new Illinois Mask Mandate issued by Governor Pritzker. We will have complimentary masks available at the Library for those who forget their masks at home. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

"What should I read next?"

Has this ever happened to you? You know you want to read something, but you’re just not sure what. Maybe you want something that’s just like that great book you read a couple weeks ago, or maybe you’re looking to branch out and try something new.

If this sounds familiar, we have good news: the Library can help! Below are some great reader’s advisory resources that can help you navigate the wild world of what to read next:

In-Person Reader’s Advisory
We have a number of trained reader’s advisors on staff. Come in and talk to one of our staff members working at the reference desk upstairs (or at the main desk in the Children’s Department if you’re looking for youth materials) and we’ll see what we can find for you.
