The library wants to help you make things! We have a button maker (makes 1 in, 2¼ in, & 3 in buttons; 2¼ in & 3 in magnets; and 2¼ in keychains), a cricut machine (DIY cutting machine that lets you make custom vinyl stickers, unique greeting cards, custom designed apparel, etc) and a sewing machine (Brother XR9500PRW Project Runway Limited Edition Sewing Machine with 100 Built-in Stitches and Quilting Table) that you can reserve to use at the library. Depending on your project, you may need to bring in your own supplies or pay a small fee to use our supplies.

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.
