As of Sunday, March 15th, the Library will close to the public until further notice, in order to facilitate social distancing measures during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be closed at least through April 5.

We anticipate this closure may last through April 5th, in conjunction with local school closures - including Lark Park High School.

Primary Election 2020

The Library will be a polling location on Tuesday, March 17th for the Illinois Primary Election, but no library services will be available.

Health Practices

It is important that all members of our community continue to be diligent about washing hands with soap and water and practice good respiratory etiquette. Though no cases have yet to be reported in Bloomingdale, senior citizens and those with underlying health conditions are being advised to avoid visiting public spaces in order to prevent contracting COVID-19.
