After its founding in 1927 by the Itasca Women’s Club, Itasca Public Library closed its doors during the Great Depression. Women’s Club member, Mrs. Josephine McKenzie, saved the books and continued borrowing services out of her own home. With her hard work, our town’s library is now a vibrant organization that offers fun and educational programs to the community. Residents of Two Itasca Place Apartments, can take advantage of it all!
The library offers an amazing amount of services to its patrons. Local businesses and organizations will find an outlet to promote their services on one of the library’s bulletin boards. Business owners and professionals can also use the library’s professional databases, periodicals, and technology to support their businesses. Meeting rooms are available for reservation.
You’ll also find access to cutting edge technology at the library. Computers are available for use, or you can access the internet on your own device using Wi-Fi. You can also print, copy, fax, and scan at the library too! Audiobooks and books in Braille are made available to those who need them! Home delivery and outreach services are available for those who can’t make it to the library but want to rent a book.
Join in on one of the classes held at the library! Adults can take computer classes, or register for tech office hours to get help with their own devices. Learn a new game like chess or mah jong, or take on a new hobby like quilting or cooking.
As for kids, they can attend story time, or a book discussion club. The Pokemon league is fun for all ages, and family events like the mother/son cooking club is a great bonding experience. Teens can join “Volun-teen”, and learn the value of giving back to the community, or learn about games people play around the world on International Games Day.
There is so much to do at the library, and we would love to hear about your experience. Contact us today to learn more about our community!Back to all posts
