We're Re-Opening With Care

As Illinois begins moving into "Phase IV" of its plan to reopen,

RVDL is also looking to move forward.

We have now reopened to the public for our normal business hours.

Patrons are asked to wear a mask and observe current

social distancing guidelines (keeping 6 feet between

yourself and others) while in the Library.

Public computers are available for use.

Appointments are encouraged to reserve a computer,

and any computers not reserved will be available

on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Patrons are asked to limit their time to one hour on the computers.

We encourage people who may be "at-risk"

to call prior to coming in to check our current occupancy.

We will continue offering curbside service and virtual programs.

We hope to continue to serve our patrons in a safe manner

and look forward to seeing everyone again!

We will be closed on Friday, July 3rd and Saturday, July 4th. We hope you have a fun and safe 4th of July!

Plants are labeled with their names and price. Bags are hanging to place your money into, then drop into the book return. Plants are first-come, first-serve. Anyone interested in purchasing is invited to stop by and see what is available.
