The Bloomingdale Public Library has a rich history of progressive thinking and community involvement. From 30 years ago when the Library opened in two mobile classrooms, to today's impressive state-of-the-art facility, the residents of Bloomingdale have been instrumental in improving Library services.
With financial support, professional development, and time commitments, the Bloomingdale Public Library has evolved to a staff of over 60, providing a variety of services to patrons 68 hours each week in its 35,000-square-foot facility.
The Library's Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) gives patrons direct access to Bloomingdale's holdings, as well as the holdings of 8 area libraries. Currently the Bloomingdale Public Library holds over 128,000 items including books for children and adults, DVDs, books on cassette and CD, music CDs, puzzles, computer software, learning games and audiovisual equipment.
The library has 30 patron computers. Patrons can use the library's computers to establish their own personal email account through one of many free Internet email providers.
