In September, you can eliminate your overdue fines and benefit those in need by donating nonperishable food items. One food item waives the overdue fine on one item. All food donations will go to the Northfield Township Food Pantry. Please drop off food items at the Circulation Desk.
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! Sign up for a library card between Septemer 1-30 and you will walk away with a small prize. You'll also be entered for a chance to win an awesome raffle prize! Visit our Circulation Desk on the first floor for details.
Interested in joining the Teen Advisory Board? Do you need more volunteer hours? Do want to be active member in your community?
As a TAB member, you'll plan teen programs, decorate the Loft, help out with library events and often participate in random acts of chalk graffiti bombing (though this year we're going to try water graffiti). Pizza is included.
By turning off your computer instead of leaving it in sleep mode, you can save 40 watt-hours per day. That adds up to 4 cents a day, or $14 per year. If you don't want to wait for your computer to start up, set it to turn on automatically a few minutes before you get to work, or boot up while you're pouring your morning coffee.
Northbrook cardholders can now sign up to use the new meeting rooms on the first floor, with rooms available September 1st. The Pollak and Civic Rooms are more spacious, with new technology and furniture. Visit our Meeting & Study Rooms page for more information and to fill out an online request to reserve a room.

Go Green Northbrook is sponsoring a tour of local yards that are healthy habitats for all living creatures -- kids, pets, birds, butterflies and pollinators. The tour will feature rain gardens, local species gardens, composting, food gardens, native plants and trees, and natural lawns.
A guide to the yards has been posted at the Go Green Northbrook website.
Saturday, July 18 from 1pm to 4pm

Recycle your used greeting cards for a good cause. The library is collecting cards to send to St. Jude’s Ranch – an organization that helps abused and at-risk children. The children will use the covers to make new cards to sell to support the program.
Birthday and Thank You cards are especially needed.
Drop off your cards in the bin by the elevator and stairs in the lobby during the month of June.
