Community Members,

To keep our patrons and employees out of harm’s way, the Library will not be open for regular business until at least Wednesday, April 8. Of course this timeline is subject to change based on the latest recommendations from health professionals. By preventing people from gathering together, we can slow-down the spread of this dangerous virus.

The Library has stopped charging for overdue materials and we will waive existing fines. Due dates for checked-out items will adjust with our closure dates. For your safety and ours, please do not return materials while we are closed.

Though the building is not accessible for now, the Library still provides a number of resources you can use from home. Staff members are adding updates to our website and Facebook page on a daily basis. You may download e-books and audiobooks; stream movies, television shows and music; read digital newspapers and magazines; and participate in online classes. Explore the website for more information about virtual opportunities and be sure to check-out the Library’s Local History page. There are all kinds of great images and descriptions about Oak Lawn’s past.

We are now looking at ways to provide limited remote services to patrons. Be sure to stay connected through our website and our social media outlets for updates. And please, please, please continue to take all necessary precautions.

We hope to see you back at the Library very soon,
Jim Deiters, Director

Shannon Kazmierczak ( skazmierczak )
