Checking Out Materials
The Ella Johnson Memorial Library allows people with cards from other libraries to borrow materials. The reciprocal borrower must be in good standing with their home library by having a current non-expired card and no fines.
Library materials are usually, but not always, renewable. Non-renewable items include all new DVDs and CDs, interlibrary loan materials, materials on reserve for another patron, and materials that have already been renewed once. You can renew materials by calling us at (847) 683-4490 or by logging in to the PrairieCat Catalog with your 14 digit library card number (found on the back of your library card) and your 4 digit pin (the last 4 digits of your library card number).
The library provides books drops in four locations:
There is a one day grace period for all materials. At the conclusion of the grace period fines begin accruing based on the original due date.
Placing a Hold
All library items may be reserved with the exception of magazines.
Material not owned by the Ella Johnson Library may be ordered through interlibrary loan. The library is a member of the Prairie Area Library System, which is the primary source for interlibrary loan material. For instructions on making an Interlibrary Loan request please click here.
