Catalog Downtime

Overnight on Monday, July 11th, from 10:00 pm until Tuesday morning around 6:00 am, our catalog will be updated to its latest version. This upgrade will require intermittent downtime throughout the night. We apologize for any inconvenience you might experience.

Automated Phone Calls

If you receive phone calls letting you know when on-hold items are ready to be picked up, these calls will switch to automated, prerecorded messages on June 6th. In addition, these calls will let you know if you have overdue items or bills on your account. Calls will only be made during the following times: Monday through Friday: 10:30 am - 7:30 pm and Saturdays and Sundays: 11:00 am - 6:00 pm. If you've been receiving notifications via email or text, nothing will change.

Library Closings in May

We'll be closed on May 8th for Mother's Day, May 20th for staff training, and May 29th & 30th for Memorial Day Weekend. Even though we won't be open on these days, you'll still be able to use many library resources.

Food For Fines

This April we're celebrating National Library Week by offering fine forgiveness to anyone who donates food to help the Norridge Citadel Salvation Army Food Pantry.

From April 10th - 16th, for every non-perishable, non-expired canned good you donate, we'll take $1.00 off any late fines on your account. You're welcome to donate even if you don't have late fines.

Forgiveness applies to overdue fines only and not material replacement costs.

Easter Closing

Easter is on March 27th this year and we'll be closing for the holiday. Even though we'll be closed, you'll still be able to use many library resources.
