Come – visit your library!
We have programming for all ages – join us – meet your neighbors. The library offers weekly movies for adults, book clubs, remote access to library databases (Chicago Tribune, genealogy, etc.), books on CD, music on CD, DVDs, large print books, computer stations, materials in Spanish, Polish and Arabic...and more.
Of note you are able to use your Prairie Trails Library card at any local library – including the Chicago Public Library (they will give you a reciprocal card to use). Patrons may also visit, call or use the library's webpage to place materials 'on hold'. In this case we may get materials from neighboring libraries – even from across the country –so that you may check them out. Also, don't forget, you may also use the library's website to download e-books for your use.
