If you like to use the library's Media on Demand/Overdrive service, you are in luck!  You can now have 20 items checked out and 20 items on hold at a time when using Media on Demand. The limit used to be 10 items checked out and 10 items on hold. So enjoy checking out more ebooks, eaudiobooks and streaming video than ever before!

Bee in garden smallThe library is sponsoring a bee as part of the Clarendon Hills Park Foundation’s “Bees on Parade” public art project. The library commissioned children’s book author/illustrator Kevin Luthardt to design and paint the library’s bee. Be sure to stop by the library’s garden area between now and mid-September to see our “I’d Rather Bee Reading” bee!

Kevin Luthardt has written and illustrated numerous picture books including Mine!, Larabee, Peep!, and Flying.

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.
