What to Expect

Welcome to your newly renovated library!

A child wearing a masks pulls a black wheeled book basket through the Kids area of the Skokie Public Library.

You can browse, place and pick up holds, use a computer, find a comfortable place to study or work, use a private study room, enjoy our outdoor courtyards, drop into the BOOMbox or the Studio, and use library at home.

Please note that the outdoor courtyards are currently closed for safety during roof replacement.

In accordance with the latest CDC recommendations and guidance from the Skokie Health Department, everyone must wear a mask in the library at all times, regardless of vaccination status.

Physical distancing is encouraged. If you have any concerns, please contact us. If you need special accommodations, please call 847-673-7774 to discuss the available options.
