[ARCHIVED] Information on Library Curbside Returns, Virtual Library and More


Message from Library Director Betsy Adamowski:

Wheaton Public Library (WPL) will remain closed until further notice, adhering to Governor Pritzker’s extension of the Stay-at-Home Executive Order. We know that you are anxious to get back into the building, and so are we. The Virtual Library will continue throughout the spring and summer months. If you have not taken advantage of the programs, eContent or webinars, please visit the Library website today to see what you are missing and get yourself registered to learn something new. Please also, take a look at the Virtual Library Fact Sheet at to see how the Virtual Library has made a difference to so many. 

My staff and I are excited to announce that starting May 8, Wheaton Public Library will offer Curbside Returns. Library materials may be returned to the library curbside only; the regular book returns will remain closed. When arriving at the library, patrons are asked to follow the signs and pull their car up to the drop-off area where library staff will direct traffic. Patrons must then step out of their vehicle and place materials in the designated bins. Materials will be put into 72-hour quarantine and will be checked in after that time. No fines will be charged while the building is closed. 

Return hours will be held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from noon to 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Curbside Returns will be closed once capacity is reached and the bins are full. 

We truly are in this together and we thank you for your patience during this time.
