The Lisle Library District, which celebrated an historic 50th anniversary in 2015, has a reputation for top-quality public service and is known in the community as the place to go for knowledgeable and friendly assistance.
Located at the corner of Kingston Avenue and Front Street adjacent to Downtown Lisle, the library service area encompasses all of Lisle proper in addition to some unincorporated areas in Lisle/Naperville.
It is the place to go to find local information, explore your cultural heritage, pursue a hobby, stimulate your child’s interest in reading, access the internet, conduct academic research, improve your literacy, find a good book or DVD or use the many other library resources and services.
Among the most popular offerings is a Storytime series designed for young patrons. It features uniquely designed sessions which introduce children to the wonderful world of books and literacy in a way that is both engaging and developmentally appropriate.
The Library District also offers Monday Fundays and Terrific Tuesdays: featuring STEAM (science, tech, engineering, art and math) related programming.
Its Gallery 777 serves as an avenue for the respectful presentation of artistic and imaginative talents within the diverse Lisle community. It provides creative recognition for local artists to display their works.
The library also offers a film club and five professional librarian-facilitated book discussion groups including sci-fi, mystery, fiction and nonfiction.
Computer classes include sessions on databases such as Ancestry.com, Lynda.com, Twitter and Facebook for Beginners, in addition to one-on-one personal computing instruction.
“Public libraries are essential hubs of community access, education, information and connection,” said Library Director Tatiana Weinstein. She directs services and programs in accordance with the library’s mission, vision, values, goals and objectives and is accountable to the seven-member board of trustees. “Every day
brings a new experience or challenge – as well as new faces. I’m honored to work in this field and for such a great public library.”
