The Glenview Public Library enriches, educates, and inspires our diverse community by connecting people to the world of information and ideas.
Founded in 1931, Glenview Public Library serves Glenview’s 48,000 residents from its 85,000 sq ft state-of-the-art downtown facility, in the community or through online resources. Patrons can use their Library card to check out a wireless hotspot, download an eBook, stream a movie to a tablet, or conduct research using one of 70+ online databases. Over 1,200 programs are offered each year, covering a wide range of topics for all ages, from storytime and sewing to learning to use a 3D printer and laser engraver in the Library’s Innovation Center. For those looking to browse the collection, the Marketplace showcases new and popular materials for every interest. With an average of 400,000 visitors each year, GPL has grown exponentially with each new generation and will continue to serve the vibrant and diverse Glenview community for years to come.
