What People Are Saying:

This is a wonderful library with friendly and knowledgeable staff. They have up-to-date resources and are always updating their facilities to accommodate the new resources. I really can’t say enough positive things about this library. I’m very lucky to have such a great library to use.

A beautiful, kid-friendly place for study and play. They have a huge collection of adult and children’s books. A large play area for small kids and books sorted by subjects, picture books and puzzles to keep them learning and entertained.

There are several large meeting rooms being used to host events by the library and community groups. It’s not our usual library but I’m very impressed by this beautiful space. It’s a really great resource for the residents of Glendale Heights and surrounding areas.

One of the best, great staff, very helpful and up to date technology. Free fax, scan and email, and print up to 50 pages per day. No other library comes close. This is what I call tax dollars well spent. I wish other libraries would do the same.
