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.
Looking for ways to ride out COVID-19 with your kids? We have lots of great online resources available at the Library, and we’ve also compiled a list of websites geared towards kids that will help keep your kids learning and having fun while they are out of school.
