Main telephone line down at our Delmar Avenue location

Our main telephone line at 2001 Delmar Avenue is down.  We apologize if you called and all you heard was unanswered ringing.  This is an external line issue and we are awaiting a fix from the telephone company, which may not happen until later this weekend.  Until then, please call our second line at 452-6239 for service or questions.  As always, the Johnson Road library can be reached at 452-6244.  Thank you for your continued patience.

Downtown Library open; Youth Services Department closed

The Youth Services Department on the lower level of the Downtown Library is currently closed to the public. This means that the Saturday Teen gaming program is postponed. We will keep everyone updated when we reschedule the program and reopen the lower level, which should be early next week.

We do have a temporary YS desk on the main floor in front of the stairwell to the lower level. We can still provide summer reading services (signing up, reporting, and receiving prizes) from the temporary desk. If you need something from the collection we can send a staff member to get it for you. Thank you all for your continued patience.

Downtown Library is open, until further notice the Youth Services Department on the lower level is currently closed to the public because of rain water.

Rain puddle

Who knew this spring/beginning of summer would be so WET?! We’re REALLY tired of all this rain and the resulting water in the lower level of the Delmar Avenue building.

While the Downtown Library is open, until further notice the Youth Services Department on the lower level is currently closed to the public because of rain water. We have set up a temporary YS desk on the main floor in front of the stairwell to the lower level. We can still provide summer reading services (signing up, reporting, and receiving prizes) from the temporary desk. If you need something from the collection we can send a staff member to get it for you.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work though this challenge.

Niedringhaus School non-fiction room Closed until further notice.

The non-fiction room (formerly the cafeteria) at Niedringhaus School will be closed until further notice. Our non-fiction collection sustained more water damage due to the heavy rain over the holiday weekend. Until then, the Johnson Roadlibrary has thousands of non-fiction titles to browse, and you can still reserve titles via our online catalog (http://smrp.illshareit.com/).

Thank you for your understanding while we move quickly to get the room and collection back in order.Wet book
