Returns Now Being Accepted on a Limited Basis

The Evanston Public Library will begin accepting returns of books, DVDs, and more beginning Monday, June 29  at the Main Library outdoor book drops. (Book drops remain closed at all other locations.) Materials will be accepted this week: Monday through Thursday from 7 am to 4 pm. The book drops will be closed over the holiday weekend from Friday through Sunday.

All materials checked out before the pandemic and the closing of Library facilities have a new due date of August 1. 

With an estimated 50,000 books and DVDs out in the community, EPL will stagger and control the flow of returns in order to process the high volume of materials in the most effective manner. We will continue to inform you about changes in book drop and returns availability as we evaluate the influx of materials and our capacity to process and quarantine them. We thank you for your understanding.

Added Hours for Curbside Pickup

Also, EPL is now offering new added curbside pickup hours on Wednesday evenings from 5 pm to 8 pm. Read more about checking out Library materials through our Contact-free Curbside Pickup services which are by appointment only. Library materials may also be returned during a Curbside Pickup appointment. 

Stay tuned for more information about added Library services in the days to come. We appreciate your support and feedback!
