Try the Library's
New Self-Service Program Registration

Registration for library programs just got easier!  Starting June 4, the library will start using an online registration feature where you can register for library programs from home by accessing our library's homepage or by clicking on the calendar image below.

Adult Services programs are in green.

Teen programs are in red. 

Children's Services programs are in blue.

All ages programs are in black.

This is great, but how do you register?  It's as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. View the monthly event calendar and find a program that interests you.

  2. Click on the underlined event to register.**

  3. Enter your personal information and click Complete Registration.

Congratulations!  You are registered.

**There are a couple of program registration exceptions:

»Programs that require a fee, such as a bus trip, a computer class, a babysitting training class and the occasional craft program, still require you to come to the library to register in-person.  These programs are highlighted in light blue.

»Please continue to register in-person for all reading clubs, including summer reading, Rebecca Caudill, Abe Lincoln, and Monarch book clubs.

Please contact the library with any questions at 847-526-6225 or send an email to  

We hope you find this new feature to be a timesaver!
