“More Than Books” is not just a catchy tag line—it’s a statement about our library and the value we provide to our community. The mission of the Glen Ellyn Public Library is to serve the community as a vibrant center for accurate information, robust learning, and personal discovery. Many of our residents and visitors are well-versed in all we have to offer, yet others are unaware of the abundance of materials, services, and programs available both inside and outside of our building. Enter Check the Library, our way of re-introducing you to the Glen Ellyn Public Library and encouraging you to explore our rich institution that has evolved dramatically over the past decade.
