On the evening of Thursday, March 19, we learned that a member of our community was in our Central Library building on Thursday, March 12 tested positive for COVID-19.
In line with guidance from public health officials, this individual is self-isolating at home and is feeling fine at this time. Please join us in wishing them a safe and speedy recovery.
It’s not often that we close our doors. But we feel it’s important to do our part to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, and so all Library locations are currently closed until further notice.
As we continue to review guidelines from the CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health, we will continue to adjust our services accordingly.
After much thoughtful consideration of the guidance and guidelines provided by the CDC and Illinois Department of Health, we are taking preventative actions to do our part to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
These changes to our services are a precautionary measure and are not due to any known exposure to COVID-19 at our Library.
We encourage you to do your part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you’re not feeling well, please stay home and seek medical attention as appropriate. Practice good hygiene and hand washing. These healthy habits really do make a difference when it comes to preventing the spread of illness.
