NOTICE: Modification of Library service announcement for August 31-September 1

Due to a scheduled power outage at North Suburban District Library/Loves Park, the Harvard Diggins Library will have select services available on Monday, August 31 and Tuesday, September 1.

- You will be able to check out items (you must present your library card), access our Wi-Fi, and ask questions of our staff.

- Limited or unavailable services include our catalog, Omnilibraries, Overdrive, OneClick Digital, Zinio, public computers for internet access, renewals of materials, holds, and obtaining new or renewed library cards.

This outage (which takes offline the computer server that we share) affects all NIC libraries and services will vary at each location. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause! Full service should be restored by Tuesday, September 2. Look for updates on our service here.
