MORE Outreach all over Evanston...Bookbike

Our Outreach Librarians and our Book Bike are visiting more parks this summer in connection with the Summer Food Services Program and City camps. Through these efforts, more people of all ages can check out books, get a library card, and receive information about Library programs.

MORE Access to Technology for everyone...


We’ve increased our classes in basic computer and internet use as well as instruction in using all your personal technology. In 2015, patrons logged MORE than 80,000 uses of Library computers and more than 155,000 uses of Wi-Fi.  Cardholders can now “borrow the internet” through a new Wi-Fi HotSpot pilot lending program. 



MORE than 2,866 programs were held in 2015 – everything from How to Fund Your Small Business to the Hirshfield Poetry Contest to book discussion groups and popular story times for children.

Here are some highlights from early 2016.
