If you’re a Kindle Fire user and have had trouble getting Cloud Library to work on it, hopefully this will alleviate the problem.

There is no charge thanks to a very generous anonymous donor. Please pre-register by stopping in the library or by calling 217-368-2613. If you leave a message include your name, children’s names and ages, which session you prefer, and a call back phone number. If you don’t hear from us that means your kiddos are registered!

Safesitter Course

An update for all who might be interested in our Safesitter course through Carlinville Area Hospital & Clinics. It will be held on a Saturday at the library in Jan. or Feb. of 2024. Lunch will be provided. The cost per student is $25 but the library will pay a portion of that with grant funding we’ve received for outreach programming.

Library Crawl

We are ready for library crawlers to visit our library during the month of October! Our patrons can get passports in the library. Each passport has QR codes for maps and attractions/eateries to make it easier to plan your outings. You can stay close to home or branch out in your travels. White Hall Township Public Library, Roodhouse Public Library, Jerseyville Public Library, Brighton Memorial Library District, The Hayner Public Library District, Carlinville Public LIbrary, and Winchester Public Library are just a few of the 158 libraries participating this year! Have fun!


The Sharing Libraries donated by Laurye Davis in memory of her mother Sylvia Crawford have been restocked with children through adult books and DVDs. We still have one located on the corner across the street from the Catholic Hall. The other one is now just across the street from the NE corner of South Park. For hometowners – that’s by Marge Koehm’s former house😊. Our thanks to the current resident, Carla Patterson, for letting us use that spot (1st and 2nd pictures). We appreciate those who help us stock the libraries!
