Paper Retriever Program
Recycling is one of the
simplest things you can do to reduce waste and conserve resources.
Look for the green and yellow bin in the North parking lot. There
you can deposit all your household paper: newspapers, catalogs,
magazines, old mail and school/office papers. Not only does this
benefit our planet as a whole, but the Library as well!

The Museum Adventure Pass allows free
entry to many museums in the area including Brookfield Zoo, Chicago
