In accordance with Governor Pritzker’s executive order in response to COVID-19, the library and our exterior book drop returns will remain closed through at least April 7th. The earliest we would be open at this time is Wednesday, April 8th.

Please keep your library materials at home until the library reopens. There will be no fines assessed and you will not get overdue notices as SWAN will extend all due dates until May 1st.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this uncertain time.
