The Library is now offering access to eRead Illinois. This is another database of e-books available to our patrons. Similar to My Media Mall, eRead Illinois offers Fox River Grove Memorial Library cardholders the opportunity to download e-books to their personal devices, including Android, Apple iOS, Kindle, Nook, and Windows. For more information and help setting up an account, stop in the Library and ask for assistance. You can access the eRead Illinois link through our "Quick Links" tab on the left.

She will be available starting February 23, Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:15 - 8:15 p.m. A time slot can be reserved by calling (847) 639-2274.
Single? In a relationship? It's complicated? No worries! This month you can head to the Library for a mysterious "Blind Date" with a book! If you're up for a secret rendezvous, all you have to do is check out one of the books on display in the YA department. They are all wrapped in brown paper, and you won't know the identity of your blind date until you get it home. Will it be funny, informative, entertaining, or heart-breaking? Take a chance- without having to get all dressed up or worry about awkward lulls in the conversation. Sure, you might be disappointed, but then again you may end up having a great time with something you would otherwise never have ventured to read. You might get lucky, if not in love, then in literature!
