Main Library & Rakow Branch Buildings
The Main Library and the Rakow Branch have both drive-up and interior drops for returning library materials. Most items may be returned at the drive-up return, unless otherwise marked.
Media Dispenser discs must be returned directly to the appropriate media dispenser:
- Those with red cases to the Main Library Mediabank when the building is open.
- Those with black cases to the Rakow Branch Mediabank any time as it is outside and available 24/7.
Those with maroon cases to the South Elgin Branch Media Box when the branch is open.
The library has established bookdrops at various locations in the library district for the return of books, videos, and non-Media Dispenser DVDs and Blu-rays only. Please return all other formats to the Main Library or to the Rakow Branch.
To avoid unnecessary fees do not return materials to a book drop if the contents do not fit safely inside. When book drops are full please return at a later date or visit one of our other conveniently located bookdrops.
