Change in Email Address for Library Notices

As of August 18th, our email address has changed. Please update your address book or approved senders to include "Crystal Lake Public Library"  to ensure you continue to receive email notices for available holds, pre-overdue and overdue notices, and library card renewal notices. This change does not affect the Library's e-newsletters.
