Photo ID, Driver's license, State ID, Firearms ID.

Nonphoto ID: Bill (current or last months credit card or utility), auto

Library's Opening New Doors Project

The Winnebago Public Library has been awarded a $10,000 Live & Learn Construction Grant through the Illinois State Library. The grant will partially fund the Library's Opening New Doors project to install automatically opening telescopic sliding doors at the outside and lobby entrances to the library, providing independent ease of access to community members with mobility impairments.

One of the grant requirements are matching funds from local sources. A generous bequest from the Margaret Van Sickle estate is providing the matching funds for the project.
