As we alerted you last week, the Wauconda Area Library is closed until further notice due to the rapidly changing situation in Illinois around COVID-19 .

While the physical building and book drops are closed, we remain committed to serving the public. You can find a comprehensive list of databases online but we will highlight some below. We hope they will be of use to you during this difficult time.
