Based on guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health and other agencies, we have developed safety procedures and guidelines to help keep our staff and community members safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In-person Library Use
The Library building is open for self-serve visits of up to 2 hours during the following hours:
Monday – Thursday • 9 am – 7 pm
Friday & Saturday • 9 am – 5 pm

Please follow all instructions given to you by Library staff. Further guidelines may be issued based on new or emerging data. If you or anyone in your household is not feeling well, please do not visit the Library.
Grab and go! Please limit your visit to 2 hours or less.
There are a limited number of study spaces available.
We will limit the number of people allowed in the building and may ask you to wait outside until someone else leaves before we invite you to come inside.
You must wear a mask that fully covers your mouth and nose at all times.
Staff and patrons must maintain at least a 6 foot distance from others at all times.
We’ve rearranged some furniture, collections, and service desks. There will be limited seating or work/study spaces available.
Staff will be available at service desks for brief assistance. In-depth transactions will need to take place via phone or email, and computer assistance will be available via remote services.
