Attention Northbrook researchers. You asked for an ILL request form in WorldCat. Now you have it. Just look for the ILL tab when you find the title you want to request in WorldCat. Books only, please. Fill out the form, and we'll take it from there. This is a service for Northbrook cardholders only.

The library has added two 15" MacBook Pros for Northbrook patrons to use in-house! Both laptops come with apps like Garage Band, iMovie, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and Adobe's Creative Cloud collection, which includes Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, and more. If you're in high school or older, stop at the Periodicals Desk on the second floor with your Northbrook library card and a current ID to check one out for up to 3 hours.
