The Calumet City Public Library is at 660 Manistee Ave. If you know where the River Oaks Mall is, go north on Torrence Ave. from the mall until you reach 154th St., also known as Pulaski in Calumet City. Turn right (east) at 154th/Pulaski and go two short blocks. On the left you'll see the fire station and the police station. Go around back of the fire station. We're just behind the fire station. Manistee Ave. is between the fire station and the police station.
