Good Books to Read - September 2014

Every day, librarians here at the Franklin Park Library and nationwide evaluate book reviews and select upcoming titles for our collections. Our collective expertise is harnessed into LibraryReads, a monthly list of the top ten books that librarians across the country love.

View the September 2014 LibraryReads List, and then explore previous lists for past selections.

Search our online catalog for these titles, and don't be afraid to place a hold on a item! Librarians at the Info Desk and the Kids Crossing Desk are more than willing to help you learn how to locate items, place holds, and offer suggestions to match your reading tastes and interests.

September is Library Card Sign up Month.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when the Franklin Park Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to promote the benefits of a free library card. Your Franklin Park Library Card is the ticket to a wide variety of materials, programs, services, our Digital Library, and much more.

Circulation Services is offering a plentiful assortment of incentives and prizes during September 2014. It's the perfect time to sign-up for your very first library card or use your current Franklin Park Library Card during the month to enter the raffles. Read all about the awesome giveaways from local businesses and organizations.

For more information, visit Circulation Services or call 847-455-6016 ext. 1. Learn more about getting a library card here.

Have a Library Card? You Could Win a Prize!

Use your Franklin Park Library Card to check out an item during April 14 - 20, 2013, and you'll earn a chance to enter our gift card drawing. If you don't have a library card, sign-up for your very own library card from April 14 - 20, 2013 to be eligible to win a prize, too. We're awarding a $10 gift card to a lucky winner from these three groups: kids, teens, and adults.

Read up on how to get your own library card. Circulation Services is ready to check out your items, and sign you up for a library card every day we're open.
