Senior Services

We offer a variety of programs and events for older adults. We also serve as a source for information and referral and will help you navigate the sometimes difficult challenges of aging.

Homebound Delivery

Are you a Skokie resident who is unable to come to the library due to a permanent or temporary disability? We can provide free delivery of books, audiobooks, and DVDs to your home on a regular basis. Foreign language materials are also available. Participants will receive a Skokie Public Library card and have all access to all library resources. Call 847-972-5651 to register.
