As the selector for the adult audiobook section at the library, I spend a lot of time listening to books on CD, Playaway, or my phone (through Hoopla or My Media Mall). With such a large variety to choose from, it can be difficult to know what to pick, especially since audiobooks can take a significant chunk of time! (Anyone who’s ever picked up a behemoth 25-CD audiobook knows what I’m talking about. Les Miserables, I’m looking at you.)

Last night at their annual meeting, Friends of the Des Plaines Public Library elected new officers.
Later this year, DPPL will kick off our long anticipated renovation project, transforming many areas of the building into new spaces that support the technology and activity you - users of DPPL - have asked for. Renovating DPPL for your Future, you might say.
If you have a beginning or newer reader in your life, you may already know how many wonderful fiction resources we have here at the library, both print and digital (eBooks and resources like TumbleBooks). Of course we also have a great collection of print non-fiction books on the second floor to suit the needs of our newer readers who have interests varying from airplanes to zoology.
But did you know we have electronic non-fiction resources that you can access from home?
Our featured database this month is just one of those resources: PebbleGo!
DPPL's collection of picture books for kids on the 2nd floor will be temporarily unavailable both on the floor and in the catalog beginning Friday, May 15.
We are installing new, forward facing shelving and when the project is complete, it will be awesome! The project is expected to take about 2 weeks.
