Update to Service Changes!

Beginning November 19 through December 6, Palatine Library is moving to just Curbside Pickup appointments. No Curbside on Thanksgiving, 11/26. All Library buildings will be closed. See palatinelibrary.org/temporaryclosure for full details.

Technology & Equipment

Explore our growing collection of non-traditional items available at the Main Library. These materials are for valid Palatine cardholders only.

Library of Things

We have a collection of unique and nontraditional items to check out. Consider borrowing one instead of purchasing something you may not use very often and help reduce wasted resources.

Cameras

We have three kinds of cameras available:

  • Digital Still Cameras
  • Digital Camcorders
  • GoPros

Borrow cameras for one week from the Welcome Desk.

STEM Kits

Check out STEM Kits and explore a variety of science, technology, engineering, and math topics. Kits include hands-on activities, learning games, or scientific equipment.

Kindles

Borrow a Kindle reader preloaded with best-selling titles from our Readers Assistance Desk. Keep a Kindle for three weeks; renew it if no one is waiting.

Roku

Borrow a Roku for two weeks to stream movies and TV shows from Netflix, Vudu, and more.
