COVID-19 LIBRARY UPDATE

The Tri-City Public Library is excited to announce the Library is reopening for Curbside Delivery.

Starting Tuesday, June 2, you will be able to pick up items that you have put on hold or ordered by phone or email. Curbside Delivery service will be available daily Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 3 pm.

Curbside Details

Walk-in Service to the Library Building is still closed to the public.

Due dates have been extended. If you have items checked out, you may keep them at home until the stay-at-home has been lifted. In-person library programs and meeting room bookings have been cancelled through June 30. Since the Illinois Heartland Library System has suspended their delivery system, items from other collections will not be available.

Don’t forget that the e-library collections (Library on the Go and the Cloud Library) are available 24 hours each day.

Staff will continue to work to determine when and how we can safely open the Library. We are working to secure protective gear for the staff, installing shields for the checkout desk and rearranging furniture to encourage appropriate distances once people are back in the building.

We look forward to seeing you (with masks on) soon!

Additional information regarding steps you can take to help prevent COVID-19 and policies as they apply to overdue fees and access to ebook repositories can be found on our COVID-19 page.

Welcome

The Tri-City Library District selects, acquires, organizes and provides access to books, magazines, cds, dvds and other materials of interest and/or permanent value. These items provide for the educational, informational, cultural and recreational needs of the surrounding areas users. The Library also promotes the importance and appreciation of reading and community involvement from childhood through adult programs.

The Tri-City Library District site also serves as a central repository and online community center. We want everyone to look beyond the books and see the library as an important resource in the Tri-City area.
