Checking Out Materials

Materials are checked out at the Checkout Desk. We also offer the privacy and convenience of self-checkout stations located in the lobby. Patrons with outstanding fees may not check out.

Returning Materials

The library has drop boxes available 24 hours a day for the return of library materials [map]. Drop boxes are located in:

  • Buffalo Grove at the northeast corner of the Grove Shopping Center near the corner Lake-Cook and McHenry roads
  • Long Grove in Stempel Parking Lot near the corner of Old McHenry and Robert Parker Coffin roads
  • Library circle driveway in front of the buliding

Patrons may also return library materials inside the library at the Checkout Desk for immediate check-in or at any public library in Illinois. Please allow several days for materials returned to another public library to be routed back to Vernon Area Public Library and checked in from your account.

Note: Patrons are responsible for materials until they are officially checked in and removed from their account.
