Library Services Update

The Sandwich Public Library is closing its doors at 107 E Center Street on Saturday, August 23rd.

What does that mean to you as a patron?

Books checked out from Sandwich PLD this week will be due back after we re-open September 17th. If you finish them before that time, you may drop them off here until the 23rd of August or you may drop them at Somonauk Library or Plano Library and they will get back to us.

If you place a hold on a book this week or while we are closed, please choose to have it delivered to either Somonauk Library or the Plano Library. You will be unable to pick up holds from us until we re-open September 17th.

Remember that you have the same privileges at our surrounding libraries that you have here in Sandwich. You can check out books, movies, and magazines. You can use the computers, print, make copies, fax, etc. Just remember to come back to us for our Grand Opening September 16th at 6:00pm and to visit us when we return to our regular hours on September 17th!

Surrounding libraries include: Robert Rowe Library in Sheridan, Plano Public Library, Somonauk Public Library, Yorkville Public Library, Charles B. Phillips Library in Newark.
