With the help of the Oak Park Health Department, the Main Library has a safe building capacity set at 120 total, or 40 people per floor. Maze Branch, now open with limited services and hours, has a safe building capacity of 40 total. Real-time capacity numbers display during open hours on the top bar of this website and on a large screen at the main entrance. We ask that all children under 14 visit with an adult. No school or group visits are available at this time. Find more parameters in our detailed plans for everyone and for our library staff »
Wear face protection that covers both your nose and mouth to enter and remain in the Main Library vestibule and building. Stay home if you are feeling sick.
Wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds; use hand sanitizer before and after touching anything. Hand sanitizer is provided throughout the library, but please feel free to bring your own in case we run low!
Clean and disinfect all high-touch surfaces frequently. Our library staff does this throughout the day. Our cleaning crew does this each evening. While we provide disinfectant wipes throughout the buildings, we encourage you to bring your own in case we run low!
Follow safe physical distancing guidelines: at least 6 feet is best. Floor markers are placed in certain high traffic areas to help. For the elevators, please plan on one person (or household) at a time.
