September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month
In honor of National Library Card Sign-up Month, Warrenville residents who register for a new library card, renew an expired library card, or use their library card during the month of September will receive a patron appreciation card valued at $15 that can be redeemed for most Library fees. For further details on library services or how to sign up for a library card, visit the Library in person or call 630/393-1171 x100.
New Lending Policies Begin September 8
In June, the Library’s Board of Trustees adopted new lending policies that go into effect on Monday, September 8. These policies simplify loan periods and fees and provide a greater incentive for the on-time return of items so that they can be enjoyed by others. Loan periods and extended use fees for certain items are changing. The grace period is being eliminated. Up to three renewals will be permitted if no one is waiting for an item. Review the policy changes.
Changes Coming to TV Series on DVD
Beginning September 8, our TV Series on DVD will check out as complete seasons for one week. This will ensure that users will have access to the complete season of a show without having to wait for individual discs. In order to facilitate this change, TV Series will be unavailable for a two-week period beginning Monday, August 25. The discs will be returned to the shelves in their new packaging on Monday, September 8.
