Curbside Service Hours

The library is now open for curbside services.
Monday – Thursday from 9:30AM – 6:45PM
Friday – Saturday from 9:30 – 4:45PM

Curbside Pickup

Place holds on items through the SWAN Catalog, or contact the library using the Department Directory below.  Items coming through Inter-Library Loan will take longer to arrive as they wait through quarantine during the delivery process.

When you are notified that your items are available, schedule an appointment for pickup.  Appointments are preferred to retrieve items. When you arrive at the library to pick up items, pull nose-in to one of the curbside pick-up spots and let us know you’re here:

TEXT “Check In” to (708) 719-8010
CALL the library at (708) 795 8000 ext. 0

Curbside Returns

We are accepting item returns in the outside return 24/7, and in a large bin between the front doors during operating hours. If possible, please return items in sealed plastic bags. All library materials will be quarantined in their bin for 72 hours before being checked in, and no fines will be charged for the foreseeable future.

Due to COVID-19, the library is NOT accepting donations at this time.
