Our building may have closed, but the library was still open—online!
When the library had to close due to COVID-19, staff created New Lenox Library @ Home, an online space full of video programs, coloring and activity pages, online resources, our digital collection and more. We now have Curbside Materials Return & Pickup, and the library building has reopened with limited services as of July 13. We're also hosting summer programs and the Summer Learning Challenge online.
Our Online Tutorials by Niche Academy help you learn how to use library resources.
Programs are posted here and on the library's social media at 10 AM each morning.
