Buildings & Grounds
On Monday, July 20, our Delmar Avenue building will not be able to make or receive telephone calls or faxes between the hours of 3pm and when we close that evening. We are changing our telephone service provider and the porting period, plus some external and internal reconfiguration is required.
Please feel free to contact the Johnson Road Branch Library at 452-6244 for assistance.
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.
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.Friday, June 26th, 2015
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.
The front ramp used for handicapped accessibility at 2001 Delmar Avenue will be closed now until Monday, April 27. This closure also includes the front elevator.
Please visit our library at 2145 Johnson Road if you are unable to use the stairs.
This is weather dependent work and we will notify you if the schedule changes.
There will also be limited access to the Teen Room on the lower level this week.
Thank you for your understanding while we work to further improve your library.
In anticipation of the weather, we are delaying opening on Saturday, February 21. Both library locations will open at 12:00 noon and close at 5:00 p.m. Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe. The comic book program scheduled for 1:00 p.m. is still a go.
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/).
Please continue to enter the Niedringhaus School library from State Street until Thursday, December 26. On that date we will re-open the parking lot and the regular public entrance (the State Street entrance will be closed). Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Due to concrete work being redone, the regular public entrance into the Niedringhaus School facility will be closed Wednesday – Friday this week. We anticipate the regular entrance being re-opened on Saturday, December 21. A temporary entrance is being opened on the State Street side of the building – please pay close attention to signs pointing to the temporary entrance. This means the parking lot (former playground) will also be closed until Saturday. Please temporarily park on State Street starting tomorrow, Wednesday, December 18. Thank you for your patience.
