From the Director's Desk:

Browsing, Computers, and More

Available Monday, June 29th 


We're excited to announce the return of key library services, such as browsing, interlibrary loan, computer use, copies and faxes, and newspaper access!  As Illinois libraries continue to prioritize your safety, some restrictions on these services have been established.  For more information, please call the library (309-593-2178) or visit our FAQ.


Beginning Monday, all collections will be open for browsing - patrons no longer need to request items prior to their visit.  Visitors may also use the library's computers (no gaming at this time), copy and fax machine, and newspapers.

Patrons may now place holds on items belonging to other libraries via PrairieCat Encore, and there is no max hold limit. Please allow for an additional 3 days of transit time to account for quarantine periods.


Curbside Delivery is still available M-F 10 AM - 4 PM
