COVID-19 LIBRARY CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT

On March 13, 2020, Governor Pritzker mandated that all schools in the state will be closed from Tuesday, March 17 through Monday, March 30 in an effort to curb the spread and impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

While normally we would invite our school-aged children to come to the library in the event of an emergency closing, this is not the best course of action when trying to curb a contagious disease.  Because containment works best when all organizations participate, many libraries and other cultural organizations will be closed for the same duration. 

This closure includes all scheduled programs and meetings.

Tri-City Public Library will continue to monitor and adjust to this changing situation.  Please check here and Facebook for updates.

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.
