Computers and Internet
The library has computer and internet stations located in the Adult Services, Youth Services and Teen area. Guest passes are available. Wireless access is available throughout the library. You may print to library printers from home or from wireless devices.
A faxing service is available at the Checkout Desk. Library staff will transmit messages for a fee. The library does not, however, provide incoming transmission service.
Helen Plum Library cardholders of any age confined to their home, either permanently or temporarily, may receive Homebound Delivery Services. Your library card gives you complete access to books, large print books, books on CD and even DVDs. All materials are delivered to your door and picked up again when they are due. Your personal volunteer can help you make selections.
If you or someone you know could use this service, please contact Karen Kee at the Helen Plum Library: 630.627.0316
If you would like to be a Homebound Service volunteer, please contact Susan Wood at Tri-Town YMCA: 630.627.9622
This is a free service sponsored by the Helen Plum Library and Tri-Town YMCA.
When you need an item the Helen Plum Library doesn't own, we will try to get it for you from another library. All you need is a current Helen Plum Library card. Contact either the Adult Services or Youth Services desks to request books, music, CDs, DVDs, magazines, articles, audiobooks, microform and more. We limit Interlibrary Loan requests to four items per week per cardholder.
