FEBRUARY REMODEL FOR THE LIBRARY!

The Justice Public Library is excited to announce that we will be doing some remodeling in February!  We would like to thank the State Librarian, Jesse White, and his office for awarding our library a construction grant.  State funds from the grant will be used to replace our worn carpeting and our program room furnishings.  We will also be replacing our circulation desk and patron computer tables with furniture that is less bulky and more user-friendly.  For the safety of our patrons, we will be closed from February 1st through February 28th.  Please come see our new look in March!

We have not forgotten our patrons, though!  Here is what patrons can expect during the remodel:

  • All material checked out at our library before we close will have a due date of March 1st.
  • You will be able to check out books and other material from most other suburban libraries using your Justice Library card.
  • We will have staff on hand to answer phones much of the time, though there will be days that staff won’t be here.  You can also contact us by e-mail or using the website contact form.
  • You can continue to place and receive holds, but we will route them to Bridgeview Public Library for pick up.  (If you prefer another library for pick up, just let us know.)
  • ALL material you wish to return before March 1st can be put in the drop box by the East entrance.  This includes all types of material, including DVDs, CDs, audiobooks, magazines, as well as books.
  • You may also drop off returns at other libraries.
  • Bridgeview will allow Justice patrons to use their computers up to two hours a day (though you may need to sign Bridgeview’s Internet/Computer agreement.)
  • All online services will be available as usual, with the exception of Ancestry.com.  So, you will still be able to access the online Catalog, our eBooks resources, EBSCO Databases, Zinio, Universal Class, Transparent Language Online, OnePlay, and HeritageQuest.
  • You will NOT be able to renew or apply for a library card while we are closed. However, if your card expiration label reads January 2017 or February 2017 and you have no fines or overdues, we will extend the card’s expiration date through March 2017 for you.

  • Once the app is installed (on PC, Android device, or both), open the app.
  • Browse/search for games and download those you want.  (Just use the app from this point on.  No need to return to the above link.)
  • The first time you open a game, you’ll need to type in the e-mail and password you used to create your account.  Once each game is activated, you can play it offline.
