barb retirement flyer smallerLibrarian Barb Stepina will be retiring from the Clarendon Hills Public Library after 21 years of working here!  Please join us in thanking her for her service and in saying good-bye at our Drop-In Open House for Barb on Tuesday, April 25th from 2-4 pm on the Main Level of the library.  There will be cake!  We hope to see you there!

chpl card new smallThe library has snazzy new library cards that come as a combo pack that includes a regular card and a key tag card that can fit on a key ring.

In honor of National Library Week, April 10-15, CHPL card holders can swap out their old library card with a new combo pack card/key tag free of charge from April 10 – May 10. To do so, card holders should bring their current unexpired library card and/or driver’s license with CH address to the library’s Check Out Desk and ask for a card swap. Please note that when you get a new library card, you will be getting a new barcode number.

After May 10, card holders can make the swap free by waiting for when their current card needs to be renewed or they can purchase one of the new cards for $1.00.

If you prefer your existing card (and existing barcode), you're welcome to keep using it. Hope to see you soon!

You can now have 10 items checked out and 10 items on hold at a time when using the library's Media on Demand service. The limit used to be 5 items checked out and 5 items on hold.  So enjoy checking out more ebooks, eaudiobooks and streaming video than ever before!
