We are fine-free. Please read through our Fine Free FAQs on what that means for you.
Most items automatically renew twice if no holds are pending, but you may check due dates and/or renew your items by logging into your account online or by calling the Renewal line at 847-590-8706.
Lost & Damaged Items: The Library does not accept materials in lieu of payment. You will be charged the replacement cost for damaged or lost materials, and are unable to check out any new materials until the replacement cost is paid.
