• A face mask is required to enter the building.
• Maintain a social distance of 6 feet as you approach the bin.
• Park in a parking spot along Stafford Place. Even if you’re only getting out of your car to quickly pick up an item or make a return, do not park along the curb adjacent to the Library.
• Please do not leave materials anywhere on our property other than in the designated bin. You may be responsible for the value of the items should any damage or loss occur.
• To ensure the safe handling of all materials, returned items will be placed in quarantine for 7 days and will remain on your library account until they are checked in. No fines or fees will accrue on your account.

Es hora de regresar sus artículos

A partir del 8 de septiembre puede devolver libros, revistas, CDs y DVDs las 24 horas del día en el buzón de devoluciones desde su automóvil que se encuentra enfrente de la entrada del nivel inferior.

A partir del 1 de septiembre devuelva todos los materiales de la biblioteca al contenedor que se encuentra en el vestíbulo de la entrada de Stafford Place. Junto con el traslado de la ubicación de recogida a través del Servicio en la Acera a la entrada de Stafford Place, ya no tendremos un contenedor de devolución en la entrada del nivel inferior.

Devuelva los artículos en contenedor dentro de la entrada de Stafford Place.

  • Use una máscara/cubrebocas por su seguridad y la nuestra.
  • Mantenga una distancia social de 6 pies mientras se acerca al contenedor.
  • Estaciónese en un lugar de estacionamiento a lo largo de Stafford Place. Incluso si solo planea en bajar de su auto para recoger rápidamente un artículo o hacer una devolución, no se estacione junto a la acera junto a la biblioteca.
  • Por favor no deje artículos en ningún lugar de nuestra propiedad que no sea el contenedor designado. Usted puede ser responsable del valor de los artículos en caso de que se produzcan daños o perdidos.
  • Para garantizar el procesamiento seguro de todos los artículos, todo aquello que se devuelva se pondrá en cuarentena durante 7 días y permanecerán en su cuenta de la biblioteca hasta que se procesen. No se acumularán multas ni tarifas en su cuenta.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, llame a Servicios para Miembros al 630 / 393-1171 x100.

  1. Please include info on fines (or no fines) on curbside emails to members to set people at eaae. I think previous policy was no fines.

    • Thank you for your comment. We have been including a message in our weekly eNews that no late fees will accrue during our closure. Due dates for all materials have been extended through June 30. You do not need to renew any materials through June 30. If you have a specific question about your materials, please email

  2. Good luck with this new procedure and I hope everyone stays well. Warreville Public Library is the best!

  3. The message is unclear. I assume Monday is a return day. Tuesday is blocked out. Or is it the other way around.

    • We are accepting returns 6 days a week. Tuesday and Thursday are highlighted on this chart because the return times on these days are 2 to 6 pm while M/W/F/Saturday the return times are 10 am to 2 pm.

    • Barb,

      We are working hard on setting up our procedures for curbside pickup, and we expect to be ready for you soon! We will make an announcement on the blog as soon as we’re sure of all the details.

    • We do not yet have a firm date for reopening. In the interim, consider visiting Discoveries Resale Shop. They usually have a nice selection of used books at reasonable prices … and purchases support a local not-for-profit organization.

  4. Hi,
    Can you place these return times right on the homepage so we don’t have to click anything to find them? Thank you!
