The library offers free or discounted passes to many Chicago-area museums and zoos.

Passes are good for one week from the day they are issued and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no need to return the pass once you are finished with it. Only one pass may be issued per adult library card.

We are accepting donations!

The library is again accepting donations. Please think of us as you do your spring cleaning. πŸ™‚

Milkweed seeds available!

Would you like to help support the monarch butterfly, Illinois’s state insect? πŸ¦‹

Pick up a free packet of milkweed seeds today!

From the Chicago Tribune:

In the last 25 years, monarchs’ populations have plunged by the hundreds of millions, according to the wildlife service’s species status assessment report. The black and orange butterflies have to contend with insecticides, loss of milkweed β€” the plant monarchs lay eggs on and the caterpillars’ sole food source β€” and habitat loss. They’re also up against human-induced climate change and weather extremes.

Morgan Greene, Chicago Tribune, March 8, 2021

Seeds are available for pickup during curbside hours, while supplies last. Drop by and give us a call and we’ll bring it out to you.
