Library Renovation

The library renovation is moving right along. We are seeing progress everyday.

The 3rd floor will be closed to customers until further notice.

Staff will be able to retrieve books from the 3rd floor on an as needed basis. If no one is available to retrieve a book, customers may place a request either with a staff image of under construction graphicmember in person or by calling 217-753-4900 ext. 5630. Customers can also use the library catalog to place a request. Customers will be notified when the item is available for pick-up.
