Library service hours will be expanded as conditions allow and we are able to manage all the necessary safety and cleaning protocols.
We ask all patrons to limit their visit to no more than 30 minutes. There will be no public seating or tables available and all toys and games have been removed from the Children’s area. There will be no in-person programming and the meeting rooms will remain closed.
We have two public computers available which will be scheduled by appointment only. Appointments will be made at the top of the hour and limited to one 45 minute session per day. Computer appointments may only be made for same day and next day service. Please call the library at 815-678-4014 to schedule an appointment.
Library visitors must follow these safety guidelines:
Face masks must be worn properly at all times (ages 2 and up). If you can’t wear a mask, please call us to schedule curbside service

Book Drops: All materials must be returned to the outside book drops. Please do not bring materials into the building. All returned items must be quarantined for seven days so there will be a delay before items are checked in and removed from your library card.
