Food for Fines


Nov. 1st through Nov. 14th, Poplar Creek Library is offering the Food For Fines program.

During this time you may bring in one can or box of food for each dollar (or part of a dollar) you have in fines. Your library record will be cleared UP TO $20.00 per card. This does NOT apply to patrons in Collections.

Paper products are also needed. We donate all items to the Hanover Township Food Pantry.

These are difficult times for many in our community. They need our help. You are always welcome to donate even if you have no fines.

Also, we’re accepting dog and cat food items for our furry neighbors. Animals are an important part of a family. So don’t let families have to give up their pets during this time.

Items that are dented, out-of date, opened or in any way not usable will NOT be accepted.

Summer Celebration Parade



The Village of Streamwood held its Annual Summer Celebration July 25, 26 and 27. This year’s theme was “roar” to highlight all the wonderful accomplishments of the Village and community members.  This was the 20th anniversary for this event which features food, music, a carnival, and an afternoon parade.  The various parade entries are judged and awards given.  For the third year in a row, the Poplar Creek Public Library has the honor of being awarded the Best Theme Float designation.
