Textbooks at the Library


Did you know the Library has most of the District 122 textbooks (and some of the Lincoln-Way District 210 textbooks) available for students to use? Textbooks may be used inside the library to complete homework assignments, but they may not be checked out and taken home. So the next time you forget to bring your science textbook home from school or you need a page copied from you grade's Student Math Journal, give us a call to see if we have the textbook you need to complete your assignment.
