Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Congratulations on your Centennial!  The thought of all the books and stories that have been checked out from your library and read over those years is awe-inspiring.  You should be very proud.  …  That’s what libraries do: they connect us as human beings.  That’s what your library has done for a hundred years.

Library Closed Due to Computer Upgrade

Closing Date: 
September 12, 2017

Because of an upgrade to the Library's main computer system, the Library will be closed on Tuesday, September 12th.   During the upgrade, PrairieCat will be down, meaning users will be unable to search or place holds on items or download e-Books or e-Audio from OMNI or eRead Illinois.  

We encourage patrons to take advantage of these services before the upgrade by either downloading e-Books and e-Audio in the next few days or stopping by the Library to checkout.  Other services that will be down because of the upgrade will be our internet-based databases like Tutor.com and Ancestry because they are linked to PrairieCat. The Library will resume normal hours on Wednesday, September 13th, at 9:00 a.m. For more information, regarding this upgrade, please call the Library at 815-223-2341.
