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.

Important Information for Library Users

  1. Library overdue fines will be waived during the closure. You may still return materials to the book drop outside the main door of the library.
  2. You can still access e-book and audiobooks through our free apps at Library On the Go ( and the Cloud Library ( Just have your library card on hand – you will need the barcode number of the back to verify your eligibility.
  3. If you have any question you can email us at or leave a message at 217-364-8181. Library staff will be checking in throughout the closure period to deal with requests.
  4. Refrain from eating while reading, and do not lick your fingers when you turn the pages of a book.
