Library Opening Update

Community Update November 13, 2020

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and keep Glenview healthy, the Library building will temporarily close to the public on Saturday, November 21 and will remain closed until at least Monday, December 14. While the building is closed, the Drive-Up Window will remain open and staff will continue to provide remote services. This decision is in response to a recommendation by the Illinois Department of Public Health to help decrease the positivity rate in our region.

While the building is closed to the public, staff will continue to provide the following services:

Drive-Up Window Service
The Drive-Up Window will be open for picking up materials during the following hours:

How do I select and check out materials at the Drive-Up Window?

Select your items by placing a hold – either by calling the Library during business hours or online 24/7 through the Library catalog. When your hold is ready, you will receive a notice by your preferred method (phone, email or text) and then you may come to the Drive-Up Window to pick up your materials. Please note, due to high demand, some materials may not be available right away.

How do I get materials from another library?

Currently, holds are allowed on items owned by most libraries listed in our catalog.

How do I pay fines?

Pay fines and fees online or at the Drive-Up Window using a credit or debit card. The Library will not be able to accept cash payments at this time.

Can I donate books?

The Used Book Store remains closed until further notice. No book donations will be accepted at this time.
