Library Card Sign-up Month

Did you know that reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body? To celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month, we’re promoting both healthy activities. Send us a selfie with your Hinsdale library card every time you walk or bike to the Library to hplselfie@hinsdalelibrary.info. Participants will be entered into a drawing for a gift card. Keep reading and moving!

September 1-30
