Welcome back to the library! Stop in and see the renovation, browse the collection, check out materials and pick up holds. A limited number of tables and chairs are available for your use if you would like to connect to our wifi, study or read. We ask that patrons limit the length of their visit to two hours.
Most of our in-house services are now available including:
Do not enter the building if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19.
If you have questions about symptoms, please visit this page on the CDC website for a complete list.
Wear a mask in the building.
Everyone, including children ages 2 years and up, must wear a mask while in the building. To be considered effective, masks must fit well and cover both the nose and mouth. Masks must be worn throughout the building including in the restrooms, while talking to staff and while using the computers.
Do not eat or drink in the library.
Because you cannot eat or drink while wearing a mask, all food and beverages, including water, are not allowed at this time.
Maintain physical distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when in the building.
This includes when interacting with staff at public service desks and when waiting for a turn to use the printer or scanner.
We reserve the right to further limit your time in the building if necessary to maintain safe numbers.
Curbside pickup of items you have placed on hold and are ready for checkout is still available. Please call the library when you have arrived to let us know you would like your items brought out to you.
You can reserve a computer for up to 60 minutes (no library card required). Call 708-423-7753 during our open hours to schedule an appointment.
We are reopening our study rooms for reservations of up to 2 hours per day. Chicago Ridge cardholders may make an appointment up to one week in advance. If you don’t have a Chicago Ridge library card, you may call to make a same-day appointment when available.
We are still offering programs for all ages. Visit our events page to find programs you can attend from home.
