Visit Us at Our New Temporary Space!

Movers, workers and library staff did a tremendous amount of work to transform the warehouse into a nice temporary library. (More pictures in future posts.) Come visit us at 12838 S Cicero!

Moving Process

The move was an amazing process. The Corrigan Movers transported hundreds of boxes of books from the Pulaski facility to the temporary space at 12838 S Cicero. The building was formerly rented by Red Hawk Security.

Starting to Pack up the Library

The adventure begins! This morning the movers dropped off gray plastic packing crates so the staff can start packing up their desks and the small paperback books.

We have great sales in our Atrium Sale Room. Only 50 cents for discarded DVD's, CD's, and Books on CD. $5 for a bag full of books. We provide the bag for you.

Come check out library materials before this Saturday, October 1st at 5:00 PM. You get to keep the materials until October 31st. After all, if you borrow it, we don't have to move it!

Moving the Library

The Alsip-Merrionette Park Library is about to start renovating and adding on to our building.

During construction, it is cheaper and faster for us to move library operations off-site.

We will close the 11960 S. Pulaski facility at 5:00 PM on Saturday, October 1st. We will close the book drop the day before, Friday, September 30th at 5:00 PM.

We hope to open again on Monday, October 24th at 9 AM at 12838 S. Cicero, across from the Baymont Hotel.

Come check out lots of library materials so we won't have to move them! The due date for everything is October 31st.

Currently you can't request materials online. Three neighboring libraries have agreed to do ILL for you: Blue Island, Palos Heights and Oak Lawn.

The October Book Discussion Group has been cancelled. The October book, "Tinkers" will be discussed on November 3 at the 12838 S. Cicero location.
