Starting Monday, August 30, a state-wide mask mandate will be in effect for all individuals (ages 2+) in public spaces. The library will continue to require masks for all patrons, regardless of vaccination status. Patrons who do not wear masks will be asked to leave.

If you are unable to wear a mask or feel safer visiting from afar, DGPL invites you to use our online services. Patrons can get assistance from staff members by calling the library (630-960-1200), using the chat feature at the bottom of this page, or by emailing askus@dglibrary.org. The eLibrary is available 24/7, and many of our programs are available virtually. Holds Lockers will be available soon!

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe.
