New Lending Policies
In June, the Library’s Board of Trustees adopted new lending policies effective Monday, September 8. These policies simplify loan periods and fees and provide a greater incentive for the on-time return of items so that they can be enjoyed by others.The grace period has been eliminated. Up to three renewals will be permitted if no one is waiting for an item. Review the policy changes.
Change a Life - Be a Literacy Tutor
Imagine not being able to read a food label, fill out a job application or help a child with homework. Some of your neighbors in the Warrenville area need assistance in learning to read, write, speak and understand English as they struggle with these everyday tasks. Literacy DuPage's tutor training teaches people like you how to assist adults by providing one-on-one and small group tutoring at a time and place convenient for you and the adult learner. No teaching background or second language is required. Join us for the tutor training workshop series of six sessions on: October 1, 6, 8, 20, 22, and 27 from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Warrenville Public Library.
