Welcome to the
Steger-South Chicago Heights Public Library!

We’re here to provide lifelong learning and to help you find your path.

We are pleased to now offer Curbside Services!
Call 708-755-5040 or email ref.ssch@gmail.com for the details.

The library will offer Curbside Services the following days and times:
• Mondays-Thursdays 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m.
• Fridays & Saturdays 1-4 p.m.

For more information visit our Curbside Services page.

Our book drop is now open! If you notice the book drop is full, we ask you to please wait and make your return another time. Also, please do not place any donated items in the book drop, as we are not receiving donations at this time. Please remember that the library’s WiFi signal is still available in the parking lot; be sure to maintain the appropriate physical distance there, as well. Please stay safe and stay at home; we look forward to the days when we can fully welcome you back to the library and we can see you again in-person!

Monthly Beanstack Challenge

Are you a storyteller? In the month of September, we’ll be celebrating short stories with a short-short story challenge.

We’re challenging you to write 4 short stories in September — but your stories can be as short as a single sentence, or as long as a few pages! It’s up to you. You do not have to share your stories.

Everyone who participates will receive a Wee Write 2020 button. This challenge is open to all ages. If you participated in Summer Reading, you can log in with the same username and password, or make a new one.
