JPL is now Fine Free!
The Joliet Public Library will no longer charge fines for overdue materials on most items. Playaway Launchpads, video games, Most Wanted Collection and Interlibrary loans will still accrue fees. Replacement and damage costs still apply.For more information visit our Fines and Fees webpage.
Register each month for our Bookworm Bag by filling out our survey and Joliet Library staff will handpick library books for you to enjoy. When you pick up your books that are on hold, you will also receive a bag with some special "bookish" items! Bookworm Bags can be reserved for children, teens and adults and picked up at either library location. Just wait for your hold notification, and then you have five days to pick up your Bookworm Bag.Reserve yours today!
