Welcome to the Steger-South Chicago Heights Public Library!

Cancelled: Board of Trustees Meeting (March 19, 2020)

The Steger-South Chicago Heights Public Library will close temporarily, starting Saturday, March 14. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess as more information is made available.

We will also be cancelling our annual “Meet the Easter Bunny” event and Friends of the Library Bake Sale that were originally scheduled for Saturday, April 11. The health and safety of our patrons and staff is our first priority, and we are following the Center for Disease & Control's suggested “social distancing” to help contain the spread of COVID-19 / Coronavirus.

All library materials that were normally due between March 13 and April 30 are now due on Friday, May 1. The book drop will be unavailable; please do not return anything while we are closed.

You can continue to use the library at our website and by accessing e-books
and audiobooks using the Libby app. If needed, the library's Wi-Fi signal is still available in the parking lot. We look forward to seeing you again in-person soon.
