Celebrate National Library Week, April 9-14, at Algonquin Public Library

Celebrate National Library Week "all month long" at the Algonquin Area Public Library with many programs for all interests. Music, authors, book clubs, puppet shows, genealogy and more!

Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to land a new job, a parent looking for free activities for children or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong @ your library.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people.

Libraries provide cultural heritage and genealogical collections, materials in print and electronic formats, job seeking resources, English as second language and citizenship classes, computer classes and many other creative and resourceful programs.

Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong.

The Algonquin Area Public Library is celebrating National Library Week all month long by reaching out to the Algonquin and Lake in the Hills communities to celebrate our many partnerships. These collaborations strengthen the library’s ability to meet the needs of all members of the community.   

FOOD FOR FINES is April 9 – 15th.

We will be accepting unexpired non-perishable food items as payment in full for new or existing fines owed to the Algonquin Area Public Library.The Library will also gladly accept donations of non-perishable food items. The food collected will be donated to area families through the Algonquin/Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry.

Be sure and stop by on Wednesday, April 11 to enjoy a cookie while exploring the library and looking at the many "You Belong @ Your Library" posters featuring community leaders, businesses, and local families.

Being an educator I am a frequent user of both print and video resources of libraries across McHenry County and our library network always uses the inter-library system to get me access to creative teaching materials. Thank you for the service you do!
