Back to School and Back to the Library!


Are you ready for back to school? Get your children one of the most useful back to school supplies – a library card. It is a great way to start the school year with books and eBooks at their fingertips. We also offer free Wi-Fi. Children can also use our computers for homework, with parental permission, when they are eleven (11) years old and up. Library cards are not just for kids! If you live in the Heyworth Public Library District, stop in and get your free library card today. Unlock your passion for books, audiobooks, movies, cake pans, music, and so much more. We are so much larger than our walls!

REMINDER: Rules of the Road Review Course at Heyworth Public Library August 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The Rules of the Road Review Course gives drivers – especially senior citizens and persons with disabilities – the knowledge and confidence needed to renew or obtain a driver’s license. You do not need a library card to sign up for this free class. The Office of the Secretary of the State of IL provides this service and instructors to teach the class. Sign-up is required to prepare materials and room space. Call the library today at 473-2313.

Memorials and Donations

A gift of a memorial or donation is a meaningful way to celebrate life or an occasion. Gifts to the Heyworth Public Library District support programs, collections, and services. With donations and memorials, the library is able to expand its collection and add programs for all ages. The library is recognized as a charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service in accordance with 170(b) (1) (A) (v) and 170(c) (1) of the Internal Revenue Code. A donation to the library is a gift to the community.

We are very thankful to the forty plus individuals and families who have chosen to make memorial gifts in Vivian Mouser’s name. We thank the General Federated Woman’s Club for their recent donation of books, Dan and Marilyn Carroll for their gift to the library, and to Nancy Beveridge for her recent memorial book gift to honor the life of Ed King, Jr. We have a number of individuals that donate new magazines to the library, and we are grateful for these additions to our collection.

The library greatly appreciates the gifts and memorials donated to the Heyworth Public Library. It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary. For more information on gifts, memorials, or bequests, contact the director, Beth Porter, at 473-2313.
