Study Rooms stacked

There are two study rooms located on the Adult Services level of the library. Each study room is meant to hold 1- 2 people comfortably, but can be reconfigured to hold up to 4 people (with 2 people on stools). The maximum limit is 4 people per study room.

  • CHPL card holders can reserve a study room for up to 2 hours at a time. CHPL card holders can have up to 2 active reservations and reservations can be made up to 14 days in advance.
  • Anyone may use the rooms on a first-come, first-served walk-in basis, if rooms are available.
  • Patrons will be let into a reserved room once a patron has provided a valid ID (or CHPL library card) and signed in at the Adult Reference Desk. If no staff is at the Adult Reference Desk, patrons can sign in at the Check Out Desk on the Main Level.

Be Creative @ Your Library Banner

The Summer Reading Challenge runs from June 5 - July 29.

We challenge you to read this summer - for fun and for prizes - by joining one of our online "Be Creative @ the Library" Summer Reading Challenges. You can log all your reading online through the library's Beanstack software.

For Children

Ages Birth - 17: Log every day you read for at least 15 minutes. Read for 30 days this summer and for every 10 days you log in, you can come to the library for a prize.

Beginning June 5, 2023, you can start recording your days read through the Beanstack app or web site.

Create Beanstack Account (only if you have never created an account before) and Register for Summer Reading Challenge 

Instructions for Setting up Beanstack Account

Parents: Please note that you can create an account for yourself and then add your children to your account so that you can easily access all family members' reading logs with one login. To do this, when creating your Beanstack account, click on "Register an Individual or Family" and then "I am an adult registering a child."

Want to record your reading on paper instead of online? Not a problem. Download and print a book log sheet.  You can return this completed sheet to the library or mail it to us at 7 N Prospect Ave., Clarendon Hills, IL 60514.


For Adults

Ages 18+: Each time you complete a book and add it to your reading log, you earn a ticket you can use to enter a drawing at the end of the challenge for one of two $50 gift cards to a Clarendon Hills business!

Beginning June 5, 2023, you can start recording your books read through the Beanstack app or web site.

Need something fun to do? Come to the library and take a jigsaw puzzle home for hours of entertainment!

The library has started a puzzle exchange on the Main Level in which patrons can take puzzles – no checkout required - that are new to them and/or drop off puzzles they no longer need. Patrons do not have to bring their own puzzles to take puzzles, nor do they need to take puzzles to leave puzzles.
