We are open at our new location for our normal hours. We are also having in-person programming again!
You may still request books for curbside service. You may request books through your online account, or by calling our main phone line at 309-755-9614.
Computers, fax and copier are also available. We can also scan to email
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.
