More Ways to Recycle

Paperr Shredder
Do you have paperwork you no longer need? Documents with personal information could put you at risk for identity theft if not disposed of properly. Bring your papers to the library and feed them to the super-shredder at the

Community Shredding Event
Saturday, October 10
9 a.m. until 12 p.m.

There is a limit of 2 boxes per person. For more information, please call the library at 847-526-6225.

More Ways to Recycle

Recycle BinsDonate your old cell phones and printer cartridges to the library!

You’ll find new recycling receptacles in our lobby. Proceeds from these donated items will be used towards “green” purchases for the library.

You will still find the Reuse-A-Shoe drop-off in the lobby as well. What an easy way to join the effort to be “green conscious” with one convenient stop at your library!
