Libraries are temporarily closed until March 29

The Dundee Library and the Randall Oaks Library are now temporarily closed. This decision is in response to the nationwide effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, and the direction of Illinois Governor JB Pritzker to close Illinois schools until the end of the month.

We plan to remain closed through Sunday, March 29. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as more information becomes available.

While we are closed, we will carry out extra cleaning and disinfecting of the building. Due dates on all currently checked out materials are extended until April 20. We are no longer emptying the remote book drops. Please keep your materials until further notice (don’t worry — we trust you!).

Patrons can place items on hold while we are closed. Obviously, no libraries will be processing these holds since all 28 CCS libraries are closed and pickups are still not an option. But you can continue to browse our online catalog and place items on hold as you normally do.

You can continue to use the library without visiting by downloading eBooks; listening to downloadable and streaming audiobooks; streaming movies and TV shows; streaming music; reading digital comics, newspapers, and magazines; taking online classes; and much more. Browse our website for information about checking out online materials and resources. Visit the library’s website at

Stay connected with us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for more ideas of things to do with your library card, and ways to stay healthy and happy during this complicated time. We look forward to seeing you online and in person again soon.
