Curbside Pickup

Grayslake Area Public Library is now offering curbside pickup.  

Unlike when you place an order for food or order something at a big box store, it may take up to a week after items are placed on hold before they will be ready for pickup.  Please wait for us to notify you that your items are ready.

Library Hours

Monday - Thursday: 10 am - 8 pm
Friday: 10 am - 5 pm
Saturday: 10 am - 2 pm
