Register online, by phone at 630-924-2730, by email, or in person at the Adult Reference desk.

There are a lot of special tools in the Computer Lab that our patrons can use; our newest edition is the ability to convert audio cassette tapes to digital files, perfect for archiving or sharing via email! Save your personal audio cassettes to digital files today - our staff in the BPL Computer Lab can show you how.

Also, if you forget a charging cable, we have them available to borrow for use while at the library. We have iPhone and Android cables, including USB, USB2, and USB3 connectors.
