Book Drops Open for Returns

The Round Lake Library would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this difficult time.  As restrictions begin to lessen and regional phased openings begin the library has been carefully planning our reopening. 

At this time, we will be opening our book drops to accept material returns beginning the week of June 8th. We anticipate starting contactless curbside checkout beginning the week of June 22nd.   

We cannot accept donations at this time. 

As we begin to reopen and provide library services we are making sure to provide them in the safest way possible. New procedures and safety protocols are being put in place for everyone’s safety. 

Please check our website and social media sites for more updates in the next few weeks. 

We look forward to seeing everyone again and providing library services to our community.
