Book Club

The next library book club meeting will be held on October 20th at 2:00 pm. We will be discussing "By Invitation Only" by Dorthea Benton Frank. If you are interested in joining the book club, please contact us at the library. We would love to have you!

Curbside Services Available

The library is offering curbside services for those who would prefer not to come into the library or are unable to do so. If you would like to use this service please call at least 15 minutes ahead of the time you plan to arrive and have your library card ready. You may access our catalog and place holds at http://search.prairiecat.info/iii/encore. Call when you have arrived and we will bring your books out to you. Please call the library if you have any questions.

Item Quarantine Period Lengthened

In an effort to keep our patrons and employees safe we have lengthened the quarantine period for all items received at the library. Reaching Across Illinois Libraries, or RAILS, has also made the decision to quarantine items they receive for 7 days. RAILS is a state agency that handles our library's interlibrary delivery service. Unfortunately, this means that the holds placed for items at other libraries will be arriving more slowly than usual. This decision was made after a study done by the REALM partnership that you can read at these links: https://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/test1-results.html and https://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/test2-results.html. We are still waiving fines at this time. Thank you for your patience during this time. We appreciate you!
