Thanksgiving Holidays

The Kirkland Public Library will be closed on Wednesday, November 22nd and Thursday, November 23rd for the Thanksgiving Holiday.

We remain closed as usual on Friday and will reopen on Saturday, November 25th at 9:00 a.m.

We lock our drop box over all holidays as we’ve had trash thrown in and books damaged.  Please remember this and return your items either before or after the holiday.  If you need to renew an item, please call 815-522-6260 and leave a message.

Do not leave anything between the doors

as the materials could be damaged or missing

and you will be responsible for the charges. 

Adult Book Club

Adult Book Club meets on the third Thursday of the month. All are welcome. If you’d like to join us on January 18th (we don’t meet in December), let me know so I can get you a copy of our selection.

Selection to be determined.

Drop Box

Please remember the drop box is to be used only if the library is not open.  We only check it first thing when we open and it is not rechecked again until the next time we open.  Your book could sit in the box and not be checked in on time.  If we are open, please return it inside so that a fine does not accumulate.  Also, remember DVDs, audio books, and books borrowed from other libraries may not be put in the drop box — they must all be returned inside and are subject to a fine if deposited in the box.  Also, do not leave anything between the doors.

DROP BOX WILL BE LOCKED OUT OVER ALL HOLIDAYS —

We lock our drop box over all holidays as we’ve had trash thrown in and books damaged.  Please remember this and return your items either before or after the holiday.  Do not leave anything between the doors or you will be responsible for damaged and/or lost items.

Gifts and Memorials

Looking to honor a friend, remember a loved one or celebrate a special occasion? Supporting the Kirkland Public Library through a monetary donation furthers the library’s mission to share the joy of reading, discovery and creativity with the community. Your gift also allows us to honor or memorialize someone special to you.

Monetary donations may be dropped off at the library during regular business hours or mailed to us at PO Box 189, Kirkland, IL 60146.

Adult Cookbook Club

Let’s Get Cooking!

The idea is to critique the cookbook, not each other’s cooking.  The theme for the February meeting is has not been chosen yet.  Cookbooks will be borrowed from other libraries so that we will have a variety of books to give our opinion on.  Each person will check out a book, make at least one recipe from the book and share their thoughts about the book with the group.   If members want to, samples of their chosen recipe may be brought that evening so we can all enjoy.

The Adult Cookbook Club will usually meet on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m.; however, unlike our other book club, we will only meet every two months.  If you’d like to join in on the fun, please register with one of our librarians.

Family Pets

Please remember that family pets are not allowed in the library. Yes, you’re right – we did have Banjo with us; however, she was being trained to become a leader dog. As with any other public place, a service dog is certainly welcome to be in the library with the person they are assisting.
