Memorial Day

We will be closed on Sunday, May 26th and Monday, May 27th for the Memorial Day weekend. We will reopen on Tuesday, May 28th. Also, please note that we will be closed on Sundays in the summer starting June 9th.

You can always access our catalog and databases from our website and mobile app. You can also return any materials to the slot on the west side of the building. Have a great three-day weekend!

Please Welcome Our New Board and Thank the Departing Trustees!

Every two years, the library must say goodbye to retiring trustees and welcome new ones. This April, Glencoe residents elected three new trustees to succeed John Tuohy who has provided outstanding service in planning and facilities during his nine years on the Library Board, Barbara Breakstone who served three terms as Library Board President during her eight-year tenure, and Stephanie Pearce who helped to enhance the library’s marketing plan while serving her four-year term. We are glad to have Joel Shoolin returning to the Library Board after having been off for a couple of years. Dr. Shoolin combines technology expertise with his practice as a physician. Kathy Doyle brings her own professional librarian experience to the Board, having started her career as a school librarian and now manages her own marketing research firm. Michelle Gooze-Miller grew up in Glencoe and is now raising her own family here while practicing as an attorney. Also, please remember that all board meetings are open to the public!
