It’s our newest, contact-less pick-up method: Pick-Up Lockers

Pick-Up Lockers are located at all three Library locations and give you 24/7, contactless access to items you’ve requested. Just follow this simple 3-step process to use our Pick-Up Lockers, available now! 

Step 1: Place a hold 

Visit and log in to your account to place holds on items you’d like to borrow. Make sure you select "Lockers-Central" or the appropriate branch as the pick up location! Or, give us a call at (847) 985-4000 and our staff can place holds for you.   

Step 2: Wait to hear from us 

As soon as your items are available to pick-up from our Pick-Up Lockers, we’ll send you an email. (If you don’t have email, we’ll give you a call.) Please do not come to the Library until you receive this notification.  

Step 3: Come to the Library ... anytime! 

Come to the Library whenever it fits your schedule – your items will be kept in our secure Pick-Up Lockers, for up to 3 days, until you take them out. Pick-Up Lockers at the Central Library are near the west entrance. They're under the overhang to keep you out of the elements and we have a motion-activated light so you can see the area around you at night. 

To get your items from the Lockers, just lift the flap covering the touchscreen and scan or key in your Library card number. The locker with your holds will pop open and the items will be checked out to you. Please take your items and close the locker door. You can then choose what type of receipt you’d like and finish your transaction. Please visit Circulation if you have any trouble using the lockers.
