The Library is Open!


The Library is open for browsing.

  1. We are open at our new location for our normal hours. We are also having in-person programming again!
  2. You may still request books for curbside service. You may request books through your online account, or by calling our curbside number at (309) 203-6208
  3. Computers and copier are also available. We can scan to email, but at this time we do not have a fax line.
  4. Our bookdrop is now open and accepting returns. Our new bookdrop is located on the north side of the building in the alley - please note the alley is one-way behind the library, and you should enter it from 8th St. The bookdrop is not stand-alone, but is attached to the building.

    Thank you for all your support and understanding! We hope to see you soon.
