Our Services for You

Your Library Card

Library cards are provided free of charge to all residents of our district, as part of your tax-supported library services. Your card gives you borrowing privileges here and at most public libraries in Illinois, access to special online resources, and more. Click here to learn how to get a library card.

If you need a book, DVD, or other item that we don't have, ask us to borrow it from another library for you.  You can request an item in person, via the phone, or via the Interlibrary Loan Request Form.

Reference Desk

If you are having trouble finding a book, author, or subject, please direct your questions to one of the librarians at the circulation desk or use the Ask a Librarian Form.
