La Salle Library returns to curbside service
Because of the increase of positive COVID-19 cases in the area, the LaSalle Public Library building will be closed to the public until further notice, however, even though the physical building is closed, the Library is still open, and the vast majority of services are available.
Effective, Wednesday, November 18th, the Library will be offering convenient curbside service only for circulation of library materials. If patrons want to check out books or other library materials, they should check availability via the Library’s online catalog, or call the Library and talk with staff, at 815-223-2341 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. If the item or items are available, staff will arrange for a convenient pick-up time that fits the patron’s schedule. The Library has extended curbside pickup options to include Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Staff will also be available to provide reader advisory.
Presently, Interlibrary Loan service is available through PrairieCat and the Library is receiving daily deliveries to fill patron holds. Please call 815-223-2341 to arrange a pick-up time.
In addition to Library materials, the staff is available to help patrons with any reference/informational questions over the phone or online. Limited computer access for patrons who need to print from the library computer or who need to complete an unemployment form or job application can be arranged. Patrons requiring these services are invited to call the Library at 815-223-2341 to schedule a convenient time.
Faxing and photocopying services are also available. Patrons are again asked to call 815-223-2341 for these services. Library returns are easy, convenient, and touchless – patrons are asked to return all materials in the outdoor book returns in the drive-up lane.
Online e-books, full-text magazine/journal articles, the genealogy database, virtual programs, and archived programs are all easily accessible by visiting the Library’s website at www.lasalle.lib.il.us or visiting the Library on Facebook at LaSalle Public Library. If patrons want to register or renew their Library Card, please contact the Library’s Director, Cristy Stupegia, at email@example.com or call the Library at 815-223-2341.
