Materials

How do I return borrowed materials?
Material can be brought to the library’s outside book drops, induction units in the vestibule, or the remote drop boxes in the community. Remember, there are no late fines for Indian Trails Library items. 

Can I place holds on physical items?
Through the
catalog, you can place holds on items to be picked up when they are ready. You will be notified when the holds are ready to be picked up, usually about 24 hours. 

Can I create a list of titles without placing holds?
Yes. When logged into your library account, you can add titles you want to remember to “My Lists.” 

I placed a hold for an item that I no longer need.
You can cancel a hold online through your account.

Will I be able to rent a meeting room when you reopen?
Because of the health situation, the library is suspending all meeting room rentals until further notice to limit the number of people in the building.

I have a mobile wi-fi hotspot from the library, but it stops working sometimes. 
When a mobile hotspot stops working, it usually means the signal tower is congested.  

Try removing the battery for about 10 seconds before placing it back in. Sprint can also send reposition signals to the hotspots to help update the data profile and point the hotspot back to the Sprint network.
 
If you continue to have problems after removing and then reinserting the battery, please call 847-279-2111 and leave your name and the barcode of the device. We’ll work to get is resolved as quickly as possible. 
 
Can I drop off book donations?
Yes, please bring them in boxes or bags, clearly marked as donation. They can be left in the vestibule of the main library. Tax receipts are available.
