Here's some exciting news!
The Alice L. Pendleton Library has partnered with the National Digital Equity Center (NDEC) to offer FREE classes on technology, hardware, and software right here at the library.
All classes are all about helping those who have difficulty with technology learn the basics of their devices and software to help them use them to their full potential. If you're interested, please consult the list to the right for the classes we're currently hosting here, as well as their dates. Anything with more than one date will be a multi-session course, so you will be expected to show up for each session.
Please note that registration is REQUIRED for all courses and there is a limit of 5 spots per class, so first come, first serve.
If you're interested in any of the classes currently offered, click on the name of the class above for more information and to register and reserve your spot. Classes will be held at the library at the scheduled date and time, and it is recommended (though not required) that you bring your own device to work on.
If you have any questions, or need help registering for the class, please feel free to ask us at the library! We'd be happy to help.
New classes will be offered as time goes on, so please check back frequently to see what else NDEC is offering!
Halloween Story Walk!
All October Long at the Narrows IIT Trail!
Just say "Boo!"
Great Practice for the little ones to overcome their fears of trick-or-treating (or just a great way to get outside, read a book, and have fun)!
Don't See the Book You Want in the Library?
Here's How to Get It!
In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.
Request for Purchase
We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think the book should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out.
Hundreds of e-books and audio books are available on Cloud Library through our website. Just go to alplibrary.org, click on “On-line Resources,” and scroll down to Cloud Library. Once you enter your library card number and download the appropriate app, you can access fiction, non-fiction, best sellers, classics, young adult, and childrens’ books and enjoy these resources on your personal media devices.
