It’s a mystery to me…

Mystery Bags are the newest addition to Youth Services! We have been filling requests since Curbside Pickup started in June. Just call, answer a few questions, and we will put together a bag of surprises! As soon as they are ready you will be notified to pick them up from the hold area shelves. Give it a try for something a little different… our picks for you!

There are also some additions and updates to our website. One thing you will see is the library tour, which goes over some changes and precautions we are taking to keep everyone safe with reopening. Just click on the arrow to watch.

Take the tour!

Also on the page you will see a “Books and Services” tab. This is not new, but is worth a look to find different resources or discover more reading choices. I’ve highlighted a few topics such as Anti-racism Resources, What Do I Read Next?, and Award Winning Books. Our e-Books & Digital Resources and Homework Help are here as well…lots of features to explore!

There are tabs listing resources for all ages:

These Illinois Readers’ Choice Award Books have a designated area in the library, too:

Several options are available in the What Do I Read Next? section to help you find similar themes, topics, or genres:

Remember, we are open now, and excited to have you visit us again-with social distancing! Should I retire my owl friends? I think I’ll still post them because we have missed you and hope to see you soon!
