The Clarendon Hills Public Library has added two fun games to our list of items available to CHPL cardholders. Borrow our classic Bocce Ball set or a 5 foot tall Jenga-styled wooden block tower. Perfect for family gatherings, birthday parties and other events. The wooden tumble tower game is quite heavy and may require a cart or two people to haul it from your vehicle to your home. Please contact the library in advance to ensure availability for either of these items.
