The library will be closed on Sunday, July 3 and Monday, July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. We hope you enjoy your weekend, and are grateful to those who served in the military to help protect our freedom.

We now have many of the assigned summer reading books for Prairie Junior High (in the lower level youth area) and the area high schools (near the first floor Information Desk). For additional information, contact the Youth Services Department at 708.371.5666 x140, or the High School/Adult Department at 708.926.7024.

All ages can enjoy our Summer Reading Programs, which run until July 30. Check out the details here in our summer newsletter.

Grab your mobile device, and try our new BookMyne app to search the SWAN catalog for library materials, or to check your AMPL account.  If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can find BookMyne in the Apple App Store. For most other phones and tablets, get the Android app from Google Play. On your hand-held device, you'll find BookMyne easier to manipulate than the web-based version of SWAN for computers. Try these step-by-step instructions, or consult the Adult Services Department for assistance at 708.926.7024.
