The Summer Lunch Bus from the Greater Chicago Food Depository will be stationed at Blue Island Library to help feed our community this summer.

Stop by the library to grab a meal, some books or craft materials while you are here!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the temporary closures of public libraries and bookstores across the country, BookPage will be pausing the shipment of the April issue until at least the first week of April.
In the meantime, BookPage has lifted restrictions on the sharing and viewing of their digital issues while these closures are in effect. Please feel free to access issues using the link below.
