The Mokena Public Library's mission
is to provide information, resources, and ideas for the purpose of enriching lives and to build connections to the community for all residents of the library district. We do this in a fiscally responsible manner by offering a diverse collection of print materials, books, ebooks, reference materials, and resources and services which include special programs and enhanced technology.

Each study room can accommodate four individuals. Study rooms may be reserved up to one week in advance by phone or in person. An individual or group may have no more than one advance reservation per week.

Borrow Materials From OTHER Libraries

If you cannot locate what you are looking for you may place a hold on the item to have it sent from another library. If you do not find the item listed in our catalog, and are a Mokena Library card holder, we will try to locate it at a library from outside our system. Speak to staff for assistance in finding your item..

 
 
 
 
 

Borrow Materials From OUR Library

Materials must be checked out at the Circulation desk or our self-check station. With the exception of Rapid Reads, most items have a two-week check out period and may be renewed three times unless there is a hold on the item or your account is not in good standing. DVDs are checked out for 14 days and cannot be renewed. Overdue fines are 15¢ per day.
