Chicago Public Library Uptown Branch Is Now Open

Here’s an update on the library. We are open!  We have reduced hours, and reduced furniture, and somewhat reduced services.  We’re open 10 – 4 on Mondays and Wednesdays, 2-8 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9-3 on Fridays and Saturdays.  The book-drop is always open and we’re asking that you return all items there, rather than bringing them into the library. There’s no hurry to return things; automatic renewal is still happening, and there are no fines.  

To keep everyone safe, please remember to wear your mask when you come, and please observe guidelines about distancing.  Another way we’re trying to keep you safe is helping you limit your time in the library.  We’re offering “grab and go” service.  If you call us, we’ll get your books and other items ready for you.  We’ll check them out and put them in a bag on the holds shelf.  You can pick them up and just zip out the door – no standing in line to check out.
