Your Library: A Great Investment

For your convenience, there is a drive-up window at the
Main Library where items may be picked up and checked
out. Please call ahead so that the library staff has your
items available at the window. We would appreciate if you
would conduct all other library business by coming into
the library to complete your transactions or activities. 

On the same wall where the library drive-up window is
located at the Main Library, there are two drop boxes,
one for books and one for audio visual items such as
DVDs and CDs. All materials from either library, except
magazines, may be returned in these drive-up drop boxes
at any time. 

At the Branch Library, there is a drop box outside the
front of the library for returning books only. All audio
visual materials need to be returned inside the library
or in the Main Library audio visual drop box.

There are multiple computers available at both libraries
to be used for Internet access. Some of the computers
available also have Microsoft Office 2010 on them to
allow typing of resumes and other documents.

Internet computers may be used for one hour and if
no one is waiting, the time may be extended for an
additional hour. Anyone with a library card in good
standing from any Central Illinois library may use the
library computers.

Anyone under the age of 18 years, must have a parent
come into the library to sign an Internet agreement
