Hitting the road?
As you pack the suitcases and finalize your Spring Break plans, we have some suggestions for making your time on the plane or in the car more entertaining and maybe a little quieter; so your Spring Break is a vacation, not just a trip.
Downloads are free with your library card.
We have several digital services that offer free ebooks, audiobooks, movies and even magazines, accessible with your library card. If you're new to the free downloads game, ask a library staff member for help at a service desk, via phone at 847-720-3280 or email, or use live chat on our home page. Get a complete training on how to download on each service through our online tutorials.
No time to download? Stop in and pick up a Playaway or video game.
Playaway is a pre-loaded audiobook that gives library patrons the portability and freedom to take audiobooks everywhere. No connectivity or downloads needed — ever. We have 1000 Playaway titles in our catalog for readers of all ages. We also have a big collection of Nintendo Switch and other video games.

Visit our newest Staff Picks virtual display for audiobook recommendations for adults; just click on the title to start the download process. We also have suggestions for family-friendly titles or titles just for kids. And for teens, we have recommendations from the newest releases.
