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.
