Current Library Services
Updated Wednesday, Nov. 18th
Due to the increasing rise in COVID-19 cases in our community, we are altering our current services in an effort to keep our community safe. We are encouraging our patrons to continue to utilize our online catalog and eResources to obtain their materials. Curbside Services will continue to be offered. Reference Services will continue to be available through phone and email. If you are unable to utilize these options to access Library Services, you are asked to call the Library at 309-523-3440, so we may make alternate arrangements.
