The new self check kiosks

The library moved to this new system in hopes of accomplishing a few things. The RFID technology has allowed the library to better track its inventory of DVDs, books, audiobooks, etc. With this feature, the kiosks can check out more than one item at a time, which helps with repetitive motion issues for the staff and can speed up the process.

One Click Digital audio book service is being replaced

Attention audio book lovers: The library has decided to discontinue the One Click Digital recorded books service so that we may bring to you a new platform. While One Click Digital served its purpose admirably, the new platform promises a superior audiobook selection that can be accessed more seamlessly and on a wider variety of modern devices.

The library will be expanding its offerings through a recent partnership with Hoopla Digital -- a service that offers on-demand content for free -- and all you will need is a library card.

You can now access Chicago Consumers’ Checkbook from computers outside the Library if you have an HPPL card. You will need to register the first time you use it, but this will give you the privilege to submit reviews for all kinds of local services.
