Curbside Pick Up begins June 1

Curbside pick up service will begin on Monday, June 1.

For this process to work we need everyone’s patience and cooperation, so please read through these details carefully.

  • Our curbside pick up is only for CAPL cardholders. If you live in our district, but don’t have a card, apply online now.
  • Curbside service hours will be as follows:
    • Monday-Thursday 10 am-1 pm, 3-6 pm
    • Friday & Saturday 11 am-2 pm

  • Place holds on items through the catalog or, beginning June 1, you may call us (847-639-4210, press 4) and we will place holds on items for you. We will not be able to request items from other libraries for the time being. While placing holds in your account, take a moment to check that your phone number and/or email listed are accurate. Watch this video on how to prioritize your holds
  • Library of Things items, STEM kits, and Theme Kits will not be available to checkout until further notice.  WiFi HotSpots are the exception.
  • You will be called when your items are available for pick up. Please do not come to the library to pick up materials unless you have been called by staff and told to come for pick up; you will be sent home empty handed if items are not ready for you.
  • Pick up will only be available directly in front of the building, two cars at a time, marked by yellow Xs on the driveway. Walkers and bikers will be asked to wait for service in the sidewalk area between the landscaping.
  • Returns will only be accepted in the drive-thru return slots on the east side of the building. 
  • We cannot accept donations until further notice.
  • We are also resuming contact-less Homebound Delivery on June 1.
  • Chemical disinfectants are not recommended for use on books. Materials being checked out to you have been quarantined for at least 7 days. If you choose to wait to use your materials, your bag should be kept in a dry, cool place to avoid heat or water damage.

Follow these steps during your pick up for everyone’s safety: 

    1. Once you are told that your items are availableClick to see the traffic pattern

      for pick up, head to the Library and pull up to the front of the building to the farthest available yellow X marked on the driveway. Please stand beside your car and tell staff your last name.

    2. Staff will then retrieve your bag of materials and place it on one of the tables in front of the Library entrance.
    3. Once the staff member has stepped away, you may step to the table and retrieve your bag of items and be on your way.
    4. If you also have items to return, please then proceed back to the driveway split and return those materials into our return slots on the east side of the building.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation! We look forward to getting materials into your hands and seeing you again.
