River Grove Public Library cardholders can place library materials they want to check out on hold. The library staff will gather these items (in order of availability) and call to arrange for curbside pickup in the Library parking lot.
Who Can Place Holds? River Grove Library cardholders with fines under $100. If you card expired while we were closed due to Covid-19, your card has been renewed. We cannot accept cards from other libraries.
What Materials Are Available? Books, audiobooks, DVDs, Blu-rays, and CDs owned by the River Grove Public Library. Materials from other libraries are currently unavailable. A maximum of 15 items can be checked out at a time.
How long does it take? If an item is on shelf, you should receive a notification (either through email or phone call) that it’s ready for pickup. You must schedule a time to pick up your items, otherwise, your holds will not be moved to the Curbside Pickup station. Please call or email to set up your pickup appointment.
Appointment slots are in 10 minute increments. A cardholder can pick up items twice a week.
Can I return materials? Yes! But only at the book return slot at the front of the Library building, to the right of the entrance doors. Staff will not accept returns at the pickup station.
