Enlightening and Inspiring Generations with Generations of Ideas

Born, Built, Grown: 1818 - 2018

Enjoy Illinois...right from the Library!  In celebration of the State's upcoming bicentennial, staff printed large format posters of historic, cultural, natural or roadside attractions that are throughout the state.  Each poster has a QR code that can be easily scanned with your phone to provide more information about each location.

These posters will change periodically throughout the year.  Check back often to see a new selection!  Posters are located in the 3rd Street foyer, in the Meeting Room and upstairs.
