Heyworth Public Library District

We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com


Library materials may now be returned using the book and audio/visual returns in front of the building along Main Street. Returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being checked in and removed from your account.

Governor Pritzker has extended the state’s “stay at home” order through May 31. HPLD will remain closed until we can open in a manner that is safe for our staff and our patrons.
