The White Oak Library in Romeoville is one of the best resources for anyone looking to entertain themselves, create, or learn something new. Thanks to the library’s tireless efforts to provide many of their programs and services online, you can now enjoy a variety of activities from the comfort of our Romeoville apartments. Here are a few exciting options.

1. Read (And Listen)

Thanks to White Oak’s renewed emphasis on providing eBooks, you can now read on any device without even needing to go to the physical library. All you need is your library card to access the Libby and Overdrive apps. If you don’t yet have a card, you can apply for one online. These apps also give you the option to download audiobooks for when you’re on the go, multitasking, or just need to give your eyes a break. Don’t forget to check out the library’s many reading recommendations when you’re looking for something new.

2. Book Discussions

A good book is even better when you get to talk about it with other people. Lucky for you, White Oak hosts a series of book discussions so you can do just that. There are discussions available for many genres and for all age groups. Since they’re virtual, you can meet people from other branches too. This is the perfect way to stay motivated with your reading, get a new perspective, and make some friends!

3. Writers’ Rooms

After reading something inspiring, you might feel motivated to pick up the pen yourself. White Oak has many resources to support you. You can join other writers in virtual rooms where you can talk out your ideas and give or receive feedback. White Oak has also compiled a list of even more resources for local authors and writers. Check out the Illinois Author Project and National Novel Writing Month events.
