Brookfield Public Library is proud to continue serving the community even during our Curbside Service model. Here are some of the ways in which we are supporting Brookfield.
Reach out to us during our open hours to get your questions answered. We can find information, put materials on hold, and continue assisting you on the phone, through e-mail, by text, chatting on the website, or even through Facebook.
Open hours: Monday through Thursday, 10-7; Friday and Saturday, 10-6
Phone: (708) 485-6917
Text: (708) 248-8433
Home Delivery Service
If you are not able to stop by the Library, we can bring your materials to you. Fill out the form here to be registered as a Home Delivery User, and let us know if you would prefer to place your own holds or have materials selected for you. Deliveries are made every Monday.
We have a variety of programs for all ages happening all the time. Find a current schedule of upcoming events here.
Many of our virtual programs are happening on Zoom. Need some help with Zoom? Check out this video on the basics of joining a Zoom program.
Use a Zoom Room
Need to arrange a virtual meeting? Reserve a Zoom meeting room by filling out our reservation form here. Once we receive your form with your preferred date and time, a Librarian will contact you to confirm or arrange an alternative time if your first choice is unavailable. On the day of your meeting, a Librarian will "open" the room for you fifteen minutes in advance and transfer hosting capabilities to you.
Meetings must start during the Library's open hours, which are currently Monday through Thursday from 11-7, Friday and Saturday from 11-6. We are currently closed on Sundays.
If you need help finding your next great read, we can help. Fill out our form here, or call our reference desk at 708-485-6917 and dial extension 130 to be connected to a Librarian. Let us know what you like to read, and we can place some books on hold for you that day for you to pick up.
