The Many Faces of the Library

Helping people, of all ages and backgrounds, learn, enjoy and better their lives.”  This is the Mission of the Crystal Lake Public Library.

As “Your Community Place for Lifelong Learning,” there is no “average” patron.  Each is an individual with a personal connection to the Library.  The way you use the Library is as unique as your thumbprint. 

Each year the Library spends a weekend in March welcoming people into a special space – The Library’s booth at the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce’s EXPO.  This year we plan to celebrate the individuality of our patrons as an integrated whole.  Visit us at Booth #22 on March 28 and 29 at Crystal Lake South High School during the Chamber’s EXPO when we celebrate you, one of the many faces of the Library.
