Meet Bikelangelo, our Book Bike!
Bikelangelo, our book bike, will be officially rolling out this summer. We are so excited to bring our library to you by setting up at popular locations around Chatham.
What can you expect from the book bike? At most locations, we will have children’s books, adult books, and DVDs available for checkout. Don’t have a library card? No worries! If you’re in our Library District, we can register you to get a library card at our book bike, just bring an ID with your current address. If you already have a library card, but it’s expired, we can fix that too!
A huge thank you to the Friends of the Library who generously funded the book bike and Wheel Fast for putting it together.
Storytime introduces your child to books, rhymes and rhythm, music and song, puppets, taking turns, paying attention, and being in a group. We have three weekly storytimes:
Baby and Toddler Time: Tuesdays at 9:45 a.m. & 10:45 a.m.
Family Evening Storytime: Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
Preschool Storytime: Fridays at 10:15 a.m.
Print, Copy, & Scan
All our locations have printers and copiers. Credit cards and cash is accepted.
The Library offers self-serve access to black & white copying in front of the circulation desk and color copies can be made at the Adult Service Desk.
Black and white pages = 15¢ each side
Color pages = 25¢ each sid
The Library was awarded an American Rescue Plan Act grant for over $11,000 to help our local workforce bounce back from the pandemic. As part of that grant’s funds, the library has purchased new databases, will be hosting job searching and small business classes throughout the year, will start a new leadership book discussion group, and will create kits to aid in meeting technological needs beyond the library’s walls.
Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).
