Tough topics to talk about

We want to help you find the information you need, and we understand there are some things you want to keep private. For your convenience, the library offers self-checkout machines. No matter what your age, you can check out books from any floor of the library. Your checkout records are private and will not be shared. Look for these subjects »

The library also has a social worker on staff who can help you figure out next steps for your situation. This is a free, confidential service. Ask at any library service desk to speak to Rob Simmons, Stephen Jackson, or call 708.697.6910.
