The Library's front entrance and materials drop are available to use again! You no longer need to enter the library through the back staff door. However, the outdoor construction project is still not completely finished. As of Friday, September 22, the library does NOT have a usable ADA accessible walkway or ramp. The ADA compliant walkway should be finished sometime next week. Our apologies for the inconvenience. If you, or someone you know, will require assistance getting in or out of the building, please let us know (630-323-8188). We're happy to help!



This September we're giving CHPL cardholders (and those who sign-up for a card) an opportunity to win wonderful gifts from our prize drawing. Simply use your card, or sign-up for a card and use it, and you can enter to win a Sony XB10 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, gift cards from Buke's Salon & Spa, Village Gourmet, Sue's Cakery and Dana Santi Pilates. Younger children can win a Mo Willems Elephant & Piggie plush animal set! 

Sign Up for a Card and Spin the Prize Wheel!
If you're a new CHPL library user, you'll find it brings tons of benefits and incredible value (using your card at other libraries, accessing online resources just to name a couple). And here's an added incentive: when you sign-up this September, you can spin the prize wheel to win a free book, a gift from our treasure chest or a bonus raffle entry! 

We appreciate our new and existing cardholders. And we thank the wonderful local businesses for their generous prize donations!

We now have a Kindle loaded with books, games and videos just for kids. It's available for in-library use only. Simply stop by the Youth Services Desk and we'll be happy to get you started. Similar to our iPad station, the Kids Kindle provides educational digital fun. Simply exchange your Library card for use of the Kindle. Time is limited to 30 minutes for a child. If there is no one waiting, the time limit can be extended.
