The library is CLOSED through April 30th in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and Illinois Governor Pritzker's "Shelter in Place" Executive Order. All overdue fines and due dates are suspended until the library reopens. The library book drops are closed.
In June 2017 the Pew Research Center released a study reporting that Millennials are the most likely generation of Americans to use public libraries.
Pew defines Millennials as anyone between the ages of 18-35 years-old as of the fall of 2016, the time at which the survey was administered. According to the study, 53 percent of the age group had used a public library or bookmobile within the previous year. The average across all adults 18 and older was 46 percent.

Is it just me, or can being an adult sometimes be a total drag?
I remember the days where I could sleep in, play make-believe with my friends, and believe with my whole little magical heart that my Hogwarts letter was coming aaaaany day now.
Today, I find myself protesting against the rising of the sun for just “FIVE MORE MINUTES!”, having a strong belief that I can’t make it through my morning without coffee, and struggling to keep my apartment clean (seriously, Hogwarts letter, where are you? I need to learn that cleaning spell that Dumbledore uses in The Half-Blood Prince!)
The point I’m trying to make here is, adulthood can be the total doldrums in comparison to when we were kids.
Well fret not, friends, because all hope is not lost!
I’m here to tell you all about how you and your family can find that spark of wonderment and joy at C2E2, and how the Des Plaines Public Library can help make your experience awesome!
