About Us

Since 1941, Heyworth has been proud of its library. Through the years the library has expanded in size, people served, and services offered. In 1989 construction was completed on the current library building.

Heyworth Public Library District library cards are free to residents who live in Randolph Township and the northwest portion of Downs Township.  (Visit Getting a Library Card for more information.)  HPLD library cards may be used at any library in RAILS (Reaching Across Illinois Library System).  This service area includes Normal Public Library, Bloomington Public Library, Mt. Hope/Funks Grove Library, and the Vespasian Library in Clinton, IL among many others.  If the Heyworth Public Library doesn’t have an item (book, periodical, movie, or music CD) that our customers need, we can usually obtain it from another library through interlibrary loan.
