During the summer, the library is closed on Sundays between Memorial Day Weekend, and Labor Day Weekend. The library should be open for regular hours of business on all other days. If the library needs to close for emergency situations (such as a power outage, dangerous weather, or hazards in the community), the closure will be posted on social media, and a banner detailing the closure will be posted on the website as soon as practicable. In these rare emergency scenarios, we ask for your patience as we work to address, remedy, or move past the reason for the emergency closure. If you are unsure about our hours or have a question regarding when we are open, give us a call (630-231-1552), send us an email (, or drop by and we’ll get you an answer as soon as we can. See you at the library!
