Illinois is in Phase 5, but your Health & Safety is still our priority!

We at the ALPLM take the health and safety of everyone entering our doors with seriousness. Special attention is given to cleaning and disinfecting the library and museum. Here's how we're keeping our facility clean:

  • Commonly-touched surfaces like handrails, door handles, tabletops, and seating is disinfected frequently throughout the day. Not touching items or surfaces is an effective way to limit the spread of viruses.
  • Public restrooms are deep-cleaned and sanitized at least every 2 hours. After using the restrooms, please wash your hands for at least 20 seconds to ensure they are clean.
  • Hand-sanitizing dispensers are located throughout the facility for visitors to use.
  • Seating for our theater experiences are cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day to protect all visitors.
