Reopening Plans

As we continue monitoring the Restore Illinois Phases for our Region (9), and specifically Lake County, we have moved from phase 4D to 4C in the Grayslake Public Library's reopening plan; Non-essential services staff are now permitted to work in the building.  

The library building will reopen to the public with limited access privileges adhering to social distancing guidelines after we reach Phase 4B;  The positivity rate average is less than or equal to 6.5 percent over a 3-day consecutive period (7 day rolling avg).  An announcement with our exact reopening date will be made after the third day.  

Library Building Closed

Out of an abundance of caution, the Grayslake Area Public Library building is closed to the public per Board President approval as Test Positivity for Lake County is higher than 8% (7 Day Rolling Average) for at least 3 days in a row.  

Staff will work both in the building and remotely to provide the following services:

safety firstBook drops will remain open!
For the safety of our staff and community do not return items if you have or suspect you have Covid for two weeks. No fines will be charged.
