WPLD Remains Closed

Governor Pritzker’s extension of the stay-at-home order means the Library will remain closed through at least May 30. Due dates for all materials have been extended to June 30, 2020. We are not accepting returns at this time.

You may be wondering why the library is not offering curbside or no-contact service. The borrow and return cycle for library materials is unlike the purchase and consume (or keep) cycle for restaurants and retail establishments. We are waiting for the results of a study commissioned by the Institute of Museum and Library Services to understand how this highly contagious virus behaves on library materials. This research will guide us in developing plans to reopen our book returns and resume checking out materials in a manner that is safe for you and our staff.

Here are a few links to access library content and services while our building is closed:

If you would like a reading recommendation or help with a research or reference question, you can email a librarian Monday–Friday, 9:30 am–5 pm: adultservices@warrenville.com.

About Sandy Whitmer

Sandy joined the library staff as Director in 2006. What does she enjoy most about working in a library? "Libraries have something to offer everyone – they can make a difference in the lives of individuals and can contribute to the well-being of the communities they serve." She enjoys nonfiction, funny memoirs and sometimes escapes reality through chick lit. Her commute makes audiobooks a necessity. Her favorite place to read is outside – any shady porch, sunny backyard or sandy beach will do.
