Parking Lot & Drive-Up Lane

For the foreseeable future, patrons will need to both enter and exit the library’s parking lot from the east. The west half of the lot will be blocked off for construction.

  • The southernmost lane will serve as the entrance. Patrons need to make an immediate left upon entering the lot.
  • The northernmost lane will serve as the exit.

A Drive-Up Lane has been added to the southeast corner of the building. Patrons using the Drive-Up Lane must put items on hold in advance. Signage marks the lane and provides instruction.

Program Description

Sounds of The Beaten Path

Join an educator at Sugar Grove Nature Center for a Summer Reading program about the sounds of nature. We’ll discuss some of the sounds you may encounter while hiking at the Nature Center, and then we’ll give a listen to find out what’s really out there. You may discover a new favorite place to read a book!

This program will be held outdoors in a woodsy setting. For your safety, please wear outdoor shoes and appropriate clothing for walking outdoors in the woods during summer temperatures. A personal water bottle is recommended.

Registration is required and can be completed online below, by calling 309.590.6168, or in person at the Adult Services Desk. Registrants will receive an email confirmation which contains driving directions.
