CLPL Will Accept Returns through December 12

Crystal Lake Public Library will accept materials returns through Dec. 12. After that date, patrons are asked to hold onto their items until the Library reopens after the repairs and renovation project are completed. Due dates have already been extended.

Monday, Wednesday &  Saturday: 9 am-4 pm
Tuesday and Thursday: Noon-7 pm

Goal: Safe return, handling, and circulation of Crystal Lake Library materials

  • Current guidelines call for a quarantine period of three days before materials are handled and checked back in by Library staff. Therefore, materials will stay on the patron’s account for  several days after they’re returned.
  • CLPL is now fine free; however, when materials are 14 days overdue (21 days while we are quarantining returned materials), patrons will be blocked from checking out additional materials and using online resources. Patrons will be charged the cost to replace the materials after 45 days past due.
