In light of the new recommendations from the Illinois Department of Public Health, beginning on Monday, November 16, our building will be closed to the public.

Contactless curbside service will be available during our operating hours of Monday 9-6, Tuesday 9-7, Wednesday – Friday 9-6, and Saturday 9-5.

Patrons can go to the library’s website to place material on hold, or they can call the library at 692-7556 or email us at Genre grab-bags curated by our librarians are also available if you miss browsing the stacks. More details are available on the website.

E-books, audiobooks, movies, and music are always available online through the Library’s website and free apps. Visit

The library will continue to accept returns of library materials at all six of our book drop locations 24-hours per day. Items will be quarantined before being checked in and recirculated, until further guidance is provided by the CDC and local health agencies.

We ask for your patience during this time as we keep the health and welfare of our patrons and staff as our top priority. If you have questions or need assistance, feel free to call us at 618-692-7556 or email us at
