2018 - It was a very good year!

Thank YOU! 

Library users donated 342 items to the Mitten Tree in December: 166 pairs of gloves & mittens; 125 hats; 41 scarves; 2 coats; 1 pair of socks; 6 pairs of underwear; and 1 hand-crocheted doll. All of the items were delivered to the Bloomingdale Township General Assistance Office to be distributed in our local area.
Thank you for your generosity.

That's a lot of stuff

We added nearly 8,000 new books and audio-visiual items to the Library's collection in 2018. New items included, classic, new, and award-winning fiction, non-fiction, movies, music, and more. Items were selected by the librarians or added at the request of patrons or donated in honor of, and in memory of, family, friends and neighbors.

New items are added almost daily. Check out our catalog to see what's new today.
