Library closed 1/30/2019 due to extreme cold

Due to the extreme cold weather, we’re making some changes to our operating hours over the next few days:

Tuesday, January 29: closing at 5pm
Wednesday, January 30: closed all day
Thursday, January 31: opening late at 1pm

All programs, classes, and events hosted by other organizations will be canceled. If you have scheduled an event at the Library for these times, we will contact you. Programming for Thursday, January 31 after 1pm will continue as scheduled except for the following classes: PreGED Prep in Spanish, the Drop-In Computer Lab, and any on-site literacy or ESL tutoring sessions.

This decision was not made lightly. We feel strongly that this unprecedented cold weather puts our patrons and staff at risk, and the best way to stay safe is to stay home.

On Wednesday, January 30, City Hall will be open as a warming center from 8:00am – 5:00pm. We fully support the outstanding team at the City of Waukegan who will be doing their best to ensure the safety of community members at this time. Please follow Waukegan City Hall and Waukegan Public Works for updates and tips.

Thank you for your understanding.
