The Bookmobile is offering limited services at all its stops (details below).
Return Drop Boxes are open and accepting returns.

If you put items on hold, asked for them to be delivered by the Bookmobile, and it’s time for your Bookmobile stop …
1. Text your name to 309.310.5821
2. When your items are ready, you’ll receive a text response.
3. Before the Bookmobile stop ends, proceed to the Bookmobile to retrieve the items which will have already been checked out to your library card.
Patrons to Bookmobile stops are able to return items and pick up items put on hold in advance after receiving notice that the items have become available.
Patrons are not able to enter the Bookmobile to browse and are required to wear a mask when interacting with our staff.
Those who wish to pick up items up at a Bookmobile stop will need to designate “Outreach” as the “Pickup Location” when placing holds.
If you have questions about placing items on hold or you’ve already placed items on hold without designating “Outreach” as your pickup location, email email@example.com or call 309.590.6141.
Curbside Pickup is available to those who put items on hold in advance. After receiving notification that hold items have become available, patrons should head to the library. There, they’ll take an immediate left and drive under the overhang in the library’s parking lot. Curbside Pickup will be marked with signage which instructs patrons how to text our staff so items can be brought to the patron’s vehicle.
Offering limited services, the Bookmobile has resumed its regular 48-stop schedule which can be viewed online at Bookmobile Schedule.

The return drop boxes attached to the southside of the library building are open, and we are accepting returns. Please note that items will not immediately be removed from patron accounts as they will first be put into quarantine.
