Library closed indefinitely

As of 7pm tonight, the library will be closed for an indefinite period of time, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Over the next few days we will be working on renewing materials that are still out and setting our system to go fine free for this period. If you receive an overdue notice, please disregard it. We ask that you hold on to any library materials you have until we give notice that we are ready to receive items back. THE BOOK DROP WILL BE SEALED SHUT!!! We ask for your patience during this unprecedented time. We’re just trying to do our part to stop the spread of this disease. Our Pizza Ranch Community Impact Night on March 23 has also been cancelled.

Library Closing due to winter storm

Due to inclement weather, the library will close at 3:00 pm today, Friday, January 17, to allow our staff to safely reach their homes before the weather gets really bad. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. As always when we close unexpectedly, no fines will be charged on items due today that are not returned. You can also renew online, email us at, leave a message at 815-589-2045, or renew through the automated phone system by calling 888-542-7259.

Be safe, everyone and stay warm!
