Plant Swap!

Come Join our Plant Exchange!
Splitting Hostas? Thinning Lilies?
New Lenox Public Library will be hosting a plant exchange on June 4, 2016
from 10am – 12pm
in our back parking lot.

There will be a safe area blocked off to bring your plants you no longer need to search for new ones to spruce up your gardens! All we ask is that you label you plants so others might identify them better. Please spread the word to your friends and neighbors!
Disclaimer: New Lenox Library is not responsible for any plants that may not live up to their potential.


The deadline to apply as a summer reading volunteer has ended. Thanks to everyone who applied and attended the information sessions to learn about summer reading volunteering! If you missed the deadline but you are still interested in volunteering at the Library, you may fill out a volunteer application form, and you will be contacted when a volunteer opportunity becomes available.
