Book Club Support
Do you have a book club? Did you know the library can help you request copies for your club members to pick up?
Here are the items we will need from you:
- Book Club Meeting Dates
- Titles of Books
- Name of Book Club
- Number of Members
- Material Format Types (regular print, large print, physical audiobook)
Books can be made available to pick up from the circulation desk at least 3 weeks before your book club meeting. From the time of request, it will take at least 2 weeks for your books to arrive. Therefore, please request your books at least 5 weeks in advance of your next meeting if you would prefer at least 3 weeks to read your book.
Certain popular titles may not be possible for us to get and we will let you know that upon receiving your title requests.
Click here to send us an email. You can also call us at 630-466-4686 and ask to speak with the Adult Department.

Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet doesn't sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there's a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep warm. But what happens when that company is eight coworkers, none of whom can be trusted? An off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong when an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?
