hoopla Holiday Borrows

Tis the season for extra holiday borrows on hoopla!  As a gift to our patrons, hoopla checkouts increase from 5 to 10 for the holidays.  We will be extending the extra borrows through the month of January to coincide with Winter READ 2022. If you haven’t tried hoopla, now is a great time.  hoopla offers eBooks, audiobooks, movies, tv shows, and music.  eBooks and downloadable audiobooks are also available through Axis 360 and Libby, by Overdrive.  All you need is your library card and PIN.  Contact the library at 309-473-2313 if you need assistance.

Winter READ 2022:  Let The Games Begin is coming soon!  We will read for prizes in January and have our annual Blind Date with a Book in February. 

The library will be closed Friday, December 24, Saturday, December 25, Friday, December 31, and Saturday, January 1, for the holidays.
