Thursday, October 3, 2019 - 2:15pm

Update: As of 10:00am on Monday, October 21, our catalog, patron accounts, and all databases and streaming services are fully accessible. 


From Saturday, October 19 through Monday, October 21, our catalog and patron accounts will have limited functionality during the transition to add the Indian Trails Public Library District to our library network (CCS).

During this time: 

  • You must have your library card with you to check out materials, including items on hold, and to purchase materials at the Collaboratory.
  • No materials will be due and no fines will be issued.
  • The online catalog may not be current. Please call ahead to confirm that an item is on the shelf.
  • You will still be able to log into your online library account, but you will not be able to use it to place holds, pay fines, or modify your account information.
  • To place a hold, please visit the Circulation Desk or call 847-272-6224.
  • Although you will still be able to access most of our online eResources, you will not be able to access Kanopy, CreativeBug, EBSCO Information Services, and Novelist.

Starting Tuesday, October 22:

  • Our library network will grow larger with access to over 203,000 items from the Indian Trails Public Library District.
  • In addition to the current 26 area libraries in our network (CCS), you will now be able to use your library card at either of the Indian Trails libraries to check out materials.
