COVID-19 Update

Our priority during the COVID-19 pandemic remains the health and safety of our staff and the community we serve. We follow the guidelines set by the Governor and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and we continually think about the best ways to serve our residents during this time. 

Face masks are optional at the library given Governor Pritzker's recent announcement lifting the mask mandate.  We still encourage visitors to wear masks, but it is no longer mandatory.  People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask. The library provides a variety of services for people who do not want to enter the library.  

If you have questions about COVID or the vaccine, we recommend consulting credible sources such as the CDC and of course us, your public library. We put together some resources here.

We offer a variety of services for those who want to limit their time inside the building:
