COVID-19 Updates

In order to protect the well-being of La Grange Park residents, the library will be closed until further notice. Need help now? Call us Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm, at (833)-577-5283 or email us at info@lplibrary.org.

Book drop re-opening

The book drop is for returns of La Grange Park items. Please continue to keep items from other libraries at home while delivery between libraries is suspended. We also cannot take returns of oversized items, such as children’s kits or Library of Things materials. No late fees will be assessed for days the library is closed. Please note that items will be quarantined for 7 days before being checked in.

Contactless delivery

Starting May 27th, La Grange Park Library will begin offering contactless delivery of library materials right to your doorstep! To begin placing holds on La Grange Park items, visit the catalog HERE and be sure to select only materials owned by our library.

 

If you are not picky about what you want, fill out forms available at lplibrary.org/kids, lplibrary.org/teens, lplibrary.org/adults  and one of our reader’s advisory specialists will choose items for you!

 

Once the items are ready, staff will deliver them to your home and send a confirmation text to let you know the items are at your door.  Deliveries will occur on weekday afternoons. 

 

At this time, library staff will not be picking up your returned items. Please drop those items in our library book drop or feel free to keep them at home for now. No fines will be assessed to items currently checked out.
