Weeding, Collection Development & Grant Money Coming!

The library was awarded $9,891.25 in grant money. Those funds have been designated for library materials and our Summer Reading Program.

Our volunteers and staff are hard at work weeding out and preparing our adult and youth collection to update and enrich the library. We apologize if it has been a little noisier and/or messier lately!

Why do we weed a collection?

Popular + New Material Available @ Library = Satisfaction

You don't know what you've got until it's.....

Gone Girl!

The Library has 3 copies of the novel, 1 audiobook and 2 copies of the DVDs. Call the library today @ 815-335-7050 to place a hold!

Tax Forms - Have Arrived!

Tax forms have arrived! We have the following forms:

Please be advised....

This year the IRS has announced that it will no longer supply a full range of tax forms to libraries. Because of cutbacks, the IRS will only supply forms 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ. The instruction booklets for these forms will not be supplied.
