Our COVID-19 Library Action Plan

We look forward to restoring our services with safety at the forefront of our decisions. To ensure safety, we have developed a phased approach to restoring our services that aligns closely with the governor's Restore Illinois plan.

Current Phase

To continue to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, the building will remain closed to the public until further notice. We are currently in Phase 3 Step 3 of our COVID-19 Library Action Plan

In our current phase, the building is closed to the public, but many staff continue to work in the building. Patrons can reserve items online and schedule a curbside pickup, receive items via homebound delivery, return items in our outdoor bookdrops, and attend virtual programs. We also provide curbside pickup for 3D prints and print jobs sent via our Print from Anywhere service. 

Learn about the library services currently available to you.

We understand you may have questions and encourage you to read the information below or reach out to us at feedback@northbrook.info or 847-272-6224 with your questions.

Important Dates

We reopened the building to patrons on July 20 and closed it again on November 13.

While we were open, we concentrated on providing limited grab & go services. Patrons were able to check out items, browse the adult Fiction and Non-Fiction collections, and print/copy/fax. Patrons were also able to use computers, study rooms, and the Collaboratory by appointment with a Northbrook library card
