Summer Fun!

The library may be closed, but the summer fun continues! This year, instead of Summer Reading tickets, tracking, and prize deadlines, we’ve created Summer Fun Packets. Do any or all of the activities at your own pace and just for fun. Share the activities you’re doing on our Facebook page on Summer Fun Saturdays!

New Closed Dates

The library will now be closed through at least June 1. Follow us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WinfieldLib/ to get the most recent updates!

This is an update to our ongoing situation and we will keep you informed as we make plans to move forward during this time. We are following all available safety guidelines when making these tough decisions. Thank you for your understanding.

🔹When will the library reopen?
As you may have seen, Governor Pritzker has announced that schools will remain closed and offer eLearning through the end of this school year. Because of this, the library will also remain closed until at least June 1.  We do not want to encourage use of the library during this time, and feel the responsible course of action is to remain closed.

🔹How can I access eBooks?
For eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines, check out our downloadables page at http://www.winfield.lib.il.us/winfield/downloadables.html. Or download the Libby and RBdigital apps on your mobile device.

🔹What is my Libby PIN?
Although Libby asks for a PIN, what they actually need is the same password you use to log in to the library’s regular catalog. Please email wfdstaff@winfield.lib.il.us if you need us to reset the password.
