Would you like a place to display your art? Consider being one of BPL's Artists of the Month! 

Each month we display one artist's work in our gallery in the stairwell and Take 5 Zone. Artists interested in displaying their work at the Bloomingdale Public Library can download a copy of the exhibition policies and necessary space request forms here. Completed forms can be sent by email to or turned in to the business office during regular business hours. 

The Friends of the Library Perpetual Book Sale is back! Located on the stacks next to our Binge Boxes to the right of the Circulation desk, books and DVDs donated to the library are available for sale.

Hardcover books are $2 each

Everything else is $1 each

Do you have books no longer in use? BPL will take your donated books and the Friends will add them to their Perpetual Book Sale or sell them through their reseller. All funds raised from your donated books make their way back to the library as donated equipment, materials, prizes to support BPL reading programs, and more! Donations are accepted at the Circulation desk. Visit our website here for details on what we accept.
