My Account Feature Temporarily Unavailable

Encore, the software that we use for our online catalog, was upgraded to a new version this morning. We have noticed that there is a problem with checked out items not being displayed correctly in the My Account feature, and we have contacted the developer about that.

Update: checked out items are now visible in My Account, although the counter next to the Checkouts link still incorrectly shows "0"

We are working to resolve this problem as quickly as possible, and we will update this post when the issue is resolved. Thank you for you patience.

Check Out Our New Program Calendar!

The Library will be changing our program calendar to a new system on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. The new calendar, which allows you to see what is happening at the Library and sign-up for programs and events, will have a brand new look as well as be much easier for you to search for, look at and register for programs and events.

On December 9, when we migrate to our new system, you will be unable to register for programs and events online. If you need to register for a program on that day, please call the Library at 815.485.2605 and register by phone.

We hope you like our new program calendar and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
