Get involved! Library Trustee Position Open

There will be a vacancy on the Fox River Valley Public Library District’s Board of Trustees effective May 21 due to a lack of candidates to fill all open positions on the April 2 consolidated election ballot. 

The vacancy will be filled by way of nomination of a candidate by the board President, subject to the approval of the full board at their June 18 meeting.  The appointee will serve for two years until the next consolidated election.

We’ve recently added some new features in our library catalog: new releases and coming soon! These new features can be found right on the main page of the catalog. In the center of the page just below the search bar are four carousels that show newly released books at both Dundee and Randall Oaks. The four carousels are: New Adult Fiction Books, New Adult Nonfiction Books, New Children’s Fiction, Picture Books, and Easy Readers, and New Teen Books.

Randall Oaks Staff Favorites of 2018

You’ve seen enough “Best Of” lists for 2018 by now, so the Randall Oaks staff thought we’d just share some of our favorites, whether they're critically lauded or not. Here’s a sampling of books and movies that came out last year that we enjoyed for various reasons- they made us think, they made us cry, they were just plain fun, etc.
