What can I have delivered?
Any holdable item available in our Library Catalog is eligible for Doorside Delivery. We can accommodate up to 10 items per delivery.
How can I schedule a delivery?
When you receive a notification that your holds are available, call the Patron Services Department at 708-598-8446 ext. 110 to schedule a delivery. Cardholders are eligible for one delivery per week.
Do I have to be home to receive the delivery?
We recommend that you be home during the delivery window to ensure that you receive your items. Though this is a contactless service, once the items are delivered, they are the patron’s responsibility.
Can items be returned during deliveries?
We can accommodate returns of up to 10 items per delivery. Patrons must notify staff of the returns when scheduling their delivery. Patrons must be present at the time of delivery for staff to accept returned items.
What if I am homebound or need special assistance?
