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.
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.
It could be easier than you think to lessen the stress in your life, and the library can help.
We often link stress to specific times of year: the beginning or end of the school year and December’s holiday season are all rampant with opportunities to stress ourselves to the limit, or even beyond. The stark reality is that stressful thoughts and situations pervade our everyday life.
