Library News

Some library users may be experiencing an issue with not seeing their library email notifications. This may be because the email address for library notices recently changed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and the emails may be going to Junk or SPAM folders. If you think that you are not receiving your emails, please check your Junk and SPAM folders. If you find them there, you should be able to right-click on the email and look for a button with something along the lines of "Never Block Sender".  If you are unable to locate an email, you should be able to find options for "whitelisted" or "trusted" senders in your email settings and should add the new address to the list.

We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.  

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. For more information about using these resources, please call or email Lori Craft at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Your CHPL library card number is required.

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.
