Masking and Program Update – Beginning February 28

The Illinois Department of Public Health and Cook County Department of Public Health plan to lift masking orders by February 28 if key COVID metrics continue to improve. In response, the River Forest Public Library anticipates making masks optional for Library visitors starting Monday, February 28, with the exception of select indoor programs for our younger children. Guidelines will be provided upon registration. Please check our event calendar for the latest program updates.

While we are optimistic about this latest development, the Library supports those who wish to continue wearing masks during their visits. Library staff are also happy to assist you via phone and email, as well as to select, check out and deliver materials to you at the front door if you prefer. As always, thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to navigate this changing landscape together.
