Book Drop Opening June 1, 2020

         Limestone Township Library District Announces             
 Phased Plan for Resuming Service

In the interest of the safety of our patrons, Limestone Township Library District (LTLD) has been closed during the pandemic. But that doesn’t mean the library stopped all services. Online resources have been available and will continue to be available, e-resources such as Overdrive E-Books, World Book Online, Tumble Books, and Consumer Reports.

The Library has been monitoring the recommendations and guidelines of government and public health officials regarding COVID-19. To ensure it is operating as safely as possible, the Library is taking a phased approach to resuming services. Staff have recently returned to the building to deep clean and prepare for when LTLD resumes partial services. You may have seen staff cars in the parking lot
Starting June 1, 2020, LTLD will accept book returns in our book drop outside of the library. Items will be placed in a seven-day quarantine as they are returned before being checked in and returned to the shelves. Our governing body has stopped all late charges through June 26, 2020 so if you return an item before that date you will not be given a late fee. We are not accepting donations until further notice.

Book drop hours are as follows:
Mondays 10 A.M. - 1 P.M.
Wednesdays 4 P.M. - 7 P.M.
Fridays 10 A.M. - 1 P.M.

We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as more information becomes available. It is always possible to contact the library by phone (815-939-1696), or email us at, message us at Facebook or Instagram.

In the meantime, we are a community, we are in this together, and we’re looking forward to seeing you soon.
