Saturday marked the end of National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role that libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. We're proud of the role we play in the vibrant and resilient Kenosha community, and we love your messages of support as we continue to figure out new ways to serve you! 

We are thrilled to announce that starting Friday, May 1st, you will be able to return checked out items to the Southwest Library drive-thru! Returns will be accepted during the same hours as curbside pickups: Tuesdays - Saturdays, 9 am - 2 pm.  

If you have items that can not be returned through the drive-thru pull to curbside pickup parking and staff will assist you.
