Enjoy Your Local Library from Home in Wheeling

Resources from Wheeling Public Library

Foxboro Apartment Homes understands how relaxing reading can be for local residents. Even if in-person visits are not possible, the best of Indian Trails Library can still be enjoyed from the comfort of your apartment in Wheeling, IL whenever one desires.

Library Books Are “Take Out” Too

The Indian Trails Library has set up “books to go“. Library cardholders can place requests for pickup through their account then pick up their material at the library’s drive-up window. This service is operating weekdays from 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Materials can also be returned through the drive-up book drops. If you do not have a library card already, registering is free and easy for Wheeling residents.

Download a Book in Seconds

The Indian Trails Library offers eight different e-book services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for cardholders. These services range from Overdrive and Hoopla, which carry books for readers of all ages. Downloads from these services are available to be read in whichever method is the most convenient for you — on your computer, from your mobile device, or on a dedicated e-reader.

Get Rewarded for Reading from Home

No in-person visits at the library are required to be rewarded for your summer reading. The Indian Trails Library is sponsoring the 20 In 2020 Reading Challenge and allowing readers to register for home on their website. Upon finishing 10 books, and again at 20 books, readers will receive prizes from the library. There are two programs, one for youth readers under 14 years of age, and one for adult readers. Books of all type count, including books you already owned. But if you are short on ideas, the library put together book lists in 19 different categories, as well as selecting the book Circe by Madeline Miller as the 2020 One Book, One Community read.

To take proper advantage of these amazing library resources, you need a welcoming place to call home in the Wheeling area. Contact us at Foxboro Apartments if you interested in living in the best apartment community in all of Wheeling.
