Helen Plum Library celebrates National Library Week with
Food for Fines - April 13th through April 19th, 2014.
All food will be donated to the
LOMBARD-VILLA PARK FOOD PANTRY
With each item of nonperishable food, you can
have $1 "paid" towards your overdue fines.
(No fines? Donations cheerfully accepted.)
April 17th is Library Snapshot Day!
Library Snapshot Day provides a way for libraries of all types across a state, region, system or community to show what happens in a single day in their libraries.
This initiative provides an easy means to collect statistics, photos and stories that will enable library advocates to prove the value of their libraries to decision-makers and increase public awareness.
Please take a minute to take our Snapshot Day survey.
Senior Socials have moved to the third Monday of each month at 1 PM.

I’m Turning 65, Now What?
This free, educational seminar is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about Medicare. We realize that long before you turn 65, you start receiving a lot of mail, and maybe telephone calls too. Learn all of the facts about when you should apply for part A, B, and Supplements.
Helen Plum Library is pleased to offer our patrons this text noticing service from Shoutbomb.com. When you sign up for this service, you will receive text messages about available holds, items due soon, and overdue items. You will receive renewal notices 3 days before your items are due, and can renew eligible items by replying to the text. These notices are in addition to the email or print notices you already receive from the Library. There is no charge for the Shoutbomb service, but your cell phone provider’s texting rates will apply.
Learn how to sign up for this new service here.
