The Northbrook Local Collection features the works of authors, musicians, and filmmakers who currently reside, or have spent a significant part of their lives in Northbrook. All items in the collection are 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.
