Introducing hoopla - a free service that allows you to check out and watch or listen to audiobooks, movies, tv shows, and music on your computer or portable device. Titles are always available, so there's never a wait. Because titles expire on their own, you don't have to worry about returning them or accruing fines! Check out up to 8 titles a month. Full details here.
Friday, November 14 is your last chance this year to recycle special items at the Northfield Township Garage before they close for the winter. Items you can drop off for recycling include:
The jury is in! Stop by the library to view the works from this year's art show, Pip Squeak: Small Works, Big Vision. Generous support and contributions were made by The Friends of the Northbrook Public Library, Visographic, Inc., The Northbrook Arts Commission, Library Furniture International, Northbrook Bank and Trust, and Today’s Business Solutions. The show will be on display through December 19. To view the show online, click here.
It's back to school time again, and that means packed lunches for many kids. Did you know that on average, a school-age child using disposable lunch packaging and utensils generates 67 pounds of waste per school year?
Instead of using plastic sandwich bags or buying individually wrapped snacks, consider reusable containers, napkins and utensils. Not only will you help the environment, it will also save you money.

Thanks to everyone who brought in old art supplies throughout the month of August for our recycling drive. We filled several boxes which we will send to Terracycle to be recycled and repurposed.
Take a look at how much we received:
Let our 3D Blu-Rays reach out and grab you with stunning visuals! Immerse yourself in crisp high definition that will catapult you into the action. Over 50 titles will launch our new collection this September in MultiMedia on the 3rd floor. To take full advantage of these titles, you will need to have a 3D HDTV (with 3D glasses) and a 3D Blu-Ray player (PS3 and PS4 also support 3D).
Do you have dried-up markers, old paint brushes and broken crayons to get rid of? During the month of August, you can recycle them at the library. Drop them off at the Youth Services desk on the second floor and we will send them to Terracycle to be repurposed. You can also bring them to our booth at the Farmers Market on July 23 or August 20.
