Update: 5/30/2020

Our Dearest Community Members,

We would first like to say that we have missed all of you and hope that you are safe and well. Though the library building has been closed since March 17th, we have offered online reference, entertainment databases, programming and online borrower registration. We will continue to offer these services with more to come!

The Library Board and staff have worked diligently to create a five phase reopening plan for the library.

Phase 1: On June 8th the library will begin accepting returns through the drive thru drop box only. At this time no late charges will be applied to accounts. We want you to be comfortable and take your time in returning items, so you will have until July 8th to return the items. Please know that all returned items will be subject to a 7 day quarantine, so items may not be readily available for check out and will still appear on accounts.

Phase 2: On June 15th the library will begin No Contact Curbside Pick Up. Staff will work with patrons to establish a pick up time and date. Curbside pick up hours are Monday through Friday 11:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m., Saturday 10:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Patrons may place holds online, and over the phone for Fox Lake Library items only. More information and procedures will follow as we approach June 15th. 

To ensure the safety of the staff and public the building has maintained a regular cleaning schedule. Staff members have been trained on new safety procedures prior to returning to work. Staff members are required to wear PPE and to maintain social distancing at all times.

Phase 3: Limited walk-in service start date to be determined

Phase 4: Transition to full service start date to be determined

Phase 5: Return of full service start date to be determined


We want to thank our community members for their continued support.
