Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

When I was a young boy, my local library was a place of sanctuary and wonder.  … Often, after collecting a dozen or more titles, I would curl up on the floor at the end of the darkest aisle and spend the day devouring my finds.  There, surrounded by the towering stacks, I found the gateway to the entire human world.  May your journeys here be as wondrous.

Winter Weather Message to Our Patrons

Winter and Illinois – while that combination conjures up many ideas, one thing it can mean is unpleasant driving. For folks who live in more open areas, outside of town, winter conditions can make driving treacherous. If the weather is snowy, icy or very windy, before you venture out to the Library, please call first. Even if in-town roads are clear, outside of town, road conditions can be very different, making it impossible for staff to travel safely. This will affect opening the Library and determine early closings. The weather also affects travel for presenters; if you are planning to attend a Library program when weather could be a factor, please call the Library to confirm that the program will go on as scheduled. 

We hope that weather-related issues will be nonexistent, realistically, this is Illinois and weather happens. In addition to calling the Library, up-to-date information can be obtained on both the Library’s website and Facebook page.
