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

Tales for Tails

This program pairs trained and certified therapy dogs with children in Grades K-5 who want to practice reading aloud.

On the night that the program meets, there will be 4 time slots available for kids to meet and read to a pup on the patio:

  • 6-6:10pm
  • 6:15-6:25pm
  • 6:30-6:40pm
  • 6:45-6:55pm

In the case of inclement weather, this program will be held in the Story Room. 

When registration opens (two weeks before the date of the program), you can register online below, by calling 309.590.6155, or in person at the Children's Services Desk at the Library.

Miss Alex will personally email those who register to assign them a time slot and introduce them to the dog they'll be meeting!
