  • Telephone and virtual reference and reader's advisory services
  • Copying, faxing, scanning, and printing documents (via Curveside Service)
  • Home Delivery service is available to all Palos Heights residents

Book drops remain open, and all items are quarantined before being checked in and put back into circulation.

Our temporary hours will remain the same:

      Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 9 am - 5 pm
      Tuesday & Thursday: 11 am - 7 pm
      Saturday: 10 am - 2 pm
