Due to the rapid rise in cases of COVID-19 in both Lake and Cook Counties and surrounding areas, the Deerfield Public Library building is closed to the public until further notice. 

The library is taking this action with the guidance of the Illinois Department of Public Health and other agencies. The closure is intended to help slow the spread of the virus and keep our community and staff safe and healthy.

While the building is closed, we will continue to offer a variety of ways to take advantage of our collections and services.

Curbside Pickup: While the building will be closed, the Library will continue to provide curbside pickup of items you put on hold.

  • Hours for Curbside Pickup (by appointment): Monday – Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
  • Existing curbside pickup appointments scheduled for Tuesday (11/17) or Thursday (11/19), 6-7 p.m., will be honored.
  • If you currently have held items ready to pick up that you now need to retrieve via curbside pickup, a member of our staff will contact you to make an appointment.

Staff assistance: Library staff will be available to answer questions via phone (847-945-3311), e-mail [email protected], or online chat (access on the front page of the website or mobile phone under “Help”)

  • Hours for staff assistance: Staff will be available Monday – Friday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Returns: The outside book drops will remain open, seven days a week.

Programs: The Library will continue with a schedule of virtual youth and adult programs. See the Event Calendar for program information.
