Local Collection

Browse the Northbrook Local Collection to find the works of authors, musicians, and filmmakers who currently reside, or have spent a significant part of their lives in Northbrook. All of the items in the collection have been donated, and each item has been evaluated by a committee of librarians based on the educational, recreational, and/or entertainment value they bring to our patrons, the community’s interest and demand, and the creator’s connection to the area.

The Local Collection is located on the 2nd floor near the Reference desk.
