The Library building is open for limited in-person services to Glenview residents only. This temporary measure helps us keep building capacity low and maintain a safe environment for staff and patrons while allowing access to materials and reducing wait time at the Drive-Up Window. Visitors can browse the collections and check out materials to enjoy at home, and should expect to:
Show a Glenview library card, driver’s license, or other proof of Glenview residency upon entry.
Keep visits limited to one hour.
Wear a face covering at all times.
Maintain at least 6 feet apart from others.
Accompany children under 13 years of age.
9 AM to 10 AM reserved for vulnerable patrons.
We continue to evaluate Library services based upon guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health. We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to expand in-person services soon. In the meantime, the drive-up, remote, and virtual services listed below remain available. Thank you for your patience and support!Learn more.

As a civic institution with a core value of providing a welcoming environment to all members of our community, the Library recognizes its role in advancing social justice through education and engagement. To that end, staff have compiled a list of anti-racism resources to foster dialogue to encourage compassion, respect for human dignity, and equity for all. View list here.
