Dear Editor:

Phase 4 has begun! On Monday, June 29, the Mount Carroll District Library reopened with its usual hours of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Thursday 9 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Service includes essential computer and copier use, and all materials will be available for check-out. We will continue to take safety precautions: patrons and staff will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. We will quarantine returned items for three days and disinfect contact areas.

If you prefer, we will offer curbside pickup of materials during our open hours. You can check our on-line catalog at www.mountcarrolldistrictlibrary and request books by phone at 815-244-1751 or email. Materials can always be returned to us in the book drop.

Our interlibrary loan system is up and running. Again, you can call or email the library with your requests.

Thanks for all of your support! We look forward to seeing you soon.
