River Grove Public Library District

Curbside Pickup

Though the River Grove Public Library’s building is only open by appointment, we offer a Curbside Pickup service for holds on library materials for RGPL cardholders!

The Curbside Pickup hours are:

Monday-Thursday: 10AM-6PM
Friday-Saturday: 10AM-5PM

You must schedule an appointment time to pick up your materials, otherwise, your holds will not be waiting for you at the pickup station.


1. Place a hold on an item either through the online catalog or by phone call to 708-453-4484. Only materials owned by the River Grove Public Library are available for Curbside Pickup for RGPL cardholders.

Note: Not all materials will be available immediately for pickup.

2. Wait to be notified by phone that your materials are ready for pickup. You will be prompted to schedule an appointment for pickup.

Please, do not schedule an appointment if you have not received a notification that your holds are available.

Please do not come to the Library without first scheduling an appointment, as your holds will not be available at the Curbside Pickup station.

3. Pick up your holds at the Curbside Pickup station in the Library’s parking lot beside the building. Please bring your library card with you for identification purposes. We don’t want to mix your holds up with someone else’s.

Pickup by car: Park in one of the designated Curbside Pickup parking spaces in front of the fence along the west side of the building. A Library staff member will be with you momentarily with your holds. If those parking spaces are full, please wait two car lengths behind so that the car in the space can back up to leave.

Please do not park in another parking spot and get out of your vehicle.

Please do not get out of your vehicle to meet the staff member. If possible, pop the trunk of your vehicle so the staff member can place your items inside your car with minimal human contact.

Pickup by bike or on foot: Stand on one of the marked spaces beside the building. The lines are spaced six feet apart in compliance with social distancing guidelines.

Please do not stand closer to your line-neighbor than the recommended six feet.

Please wear a mask. It is required.

Please be respectful of everyone’s health and safety.
