3/16/20 Update: Delivery suspended through March 30

In response to the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with regards given both to Gov. Pritzer's mandates to schools and restaurants and to the Illinois Library Association's recommendation that public and remaining academic libraries close their doors, IHLS will be suspending delivery service starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17, and lasting through Monday, March 30. This mirrors the mandate that Governor Pritzker has set for other services. RAILS Delivery service is also suspended. 

IHLS Delivery ran the delivery routes today from all three hubs as completely as we could. No additional deliveries will be made until Tuesday, March 31. We will be continually monitoring the COVID-19 landscape and will adjust the ending date if it becomes prudent to do so.

If you would like to retrieve your items from your IHLS Delivery hub, please call or email the hub manager to schedule an appointment. The buildings will be open to library personnel by appointment only. Please bring any empty tubs that you might have at your library.
