GLENCOE PUBLIC LIBRARY EXTENDS CLOSURE THROUGH MAY 30

(Glencoe, IL ― May 1, 2020) In keeping with other sensible measures to help limit the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Glencoe Public Library will remain closed to the public through Sunday, May 31st, 2020. The library board will reassess the opening date as events unfold.

All programs scheduled through the end of August have been postponed or canceled. All services are suspended during the closure. Library staff will work to determine what can be offered virtually and will continue to check email messages.

Glencoe patrons are urged to make the most of its online and streaming options, many of which are being expanded to meet greater need. See the library’s website (Digital Content/Books, Movies & More) for the full array of offerings and instructions on how to access them.

Covid-19 Closure FAQ's

LIBRARY CLOSURE FAQs

Like other places of public gathering, the library must stay closed for now. We will welcome back our patrons just as soon as it’s safe to do so. Here are answers to some questions you may have:

What about the materials I already have checked out? You are encouraged to hold onto your materials until we re-open, but if you prefer you may return them through the book drop on the west side of the building. No overdue fines will accrue while we are closed.

I ordered library materials through inter-library loan. Will I still get them? The RAILS inter-library loan system is shut down for the time being. All holds will be filled when we resume normal operations.

2020 Census: It’s Important to Be Counted!
Between March 12-20, Glencoe households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census. You can respond online, by mail, or by phone. The library has partnered with the Glencoe-Glenview chapter of the League of Women Voters to provide assistance with census completion. A League representative will be at the library to answer your questions March 12 through April 1, 3:30-5:30 pm Mon-Fri (3:30-5:00 pm Sat-Sun).  
 
The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated over the coming ten years. The census affects funding for the Village, District 35, Glencoe Park District, the State of Illinois, area hospitals, and other critical organizations. 
 
Census Day is April 1, 2020. Each household will have the option of responding online, by mail, or by phone. Every household that hasn't responded by early April will receive reminders and eventually a paper questionnaire. For more information, visit: http://www.census2020.gov/
