Inclusive Services

Elmhurst Public Library is a fully accessible building outfitted with assistive equipment and technology. We want the Library experience to be pleasant and accessible for all. We are ready to get creative to meet your needs.

Materials and Collections to Check Out

Staff is happy to take your checked out materials to the Drive Up window so that you can pick them up in your car instead of carrying them out to the parking lot.

You may also request that Library materials be pulled from the shelves and held at the Drive Up window for you to pick up without leaving your car. Just call (630) 279-8696 at least an hour in advance of coming to the Library.

Equipment and Tools to Use at EPL

Find adaptive resources like noise-reducing headphones, assistive software, wheeled hand cart, and more to help you get the most out of your Library visit.


Find websites and information for kids, adults, seniors, and caregivers.

Home Delivery

We can bring the Library to you! Our outreach delivery service seeks to make the Library accessible for Elmhurst residents who are temporarily or permanently unable to come to the Library.

Program Information
