Nightly Walk Around and other reminders

Please remember that you are required to walk around the library each evening before closing. When you do so, you need to check for  miscellaneous items that have been left at the end of the shelves and reshelve them properly. This is especially a problem in the Youth Services Department, so please be sure that it is done on a nightly basis.

Please do not ask staff to charge your electronic devices. This should be done at home or in a "staff only" area of the library.

Please keep texting at an absolute minimum.

Thank you,

Melrose Park: Images of America Book

Originally founded by German immigrants, followed by successive waves of Lithuanians, Italians, and Hispanics, Melrose Park has undergone a series of transformations since its incorporation in 1882. Close proximity to Chicago and the coming of the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad ensured that Melrose Park became a center for manufacturing and heavy industry. Major companies including Benjamin Moore, International Harvester, and the National Malleable Castings Company built plants here, and the town was also known as the headquarters for Polk Brothers.
