The newest Algonquin Public Library on Harnish has been a great addition to the community. The selection of materials is unbelievable, and if they don't carry it, you can use interlibrary loan to get it. You can renew your materials from the comfort of your home either by phone or online, and you can return or pickup on hold materials without getting out of your car by utilizing their drive-thru service. The children's area is in the lower level. There your children can play computer games, do puzzles, build with blocks, and find both pleasure and educational reading materials. They also offer a multitude of classes and activities for all ages.
