A library is much more than a place to read. The library represents the community and the opportunity to grow.
Let’s Get Together Book Club meets at the Skokie Library with other members of the community as they read together. A few of our clients participate in this unique community-based book club for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the community.
Summer Reading Club: Several clients enjoyed the summer reading club at the library. They received awards and small prizes for the amount of books they read.

- Niles Food Pantry

Homebound Book Delivery: The collaborative programming with Skokie Public library offers participants the opportunity to serve in their community delivering books, CDs and DVDs to homebound residents in Skokie Village. Helping in the community gives our clients a sense of purpose and pride. A little bookmark is given with each delivery – a perfect way to pass the community message "Together We Can."
