Trivia nights are very popular in other areas but we had never tried having one in the library. Last night was our first attempt. It took several months of planning and consulting with others who are experienced in the events but we think it was a success. Our thanks to Rich Thole for being the "sheriff" and to all of the participants. Five teams battled it out and the competition was fierce! The Titans of Trivia were successful in holding off the WigWam Warriors and emerged as the champions. However the Warriors exhibited a ferocious will fueled, no doubt, by their great costumes and yummy treats! Judging from the groans and the cheers, everyone was having fun and that was the purpose of the evening. See more of the action in the event photos section on the homepage.

Go Green @ Your Library!

Our library is trying to keep up with technology and to be as green as possible. You can go green and get information from us faster by providing us with your email address. Your privacy is very important to us. We will only use your email to send you overdue notices and notice of hold items available. As an added bonus, you may request to be notified a few days before your checked out materials are due (also sent via email) so you can either renew them or return your items and avoid those dreaded late fees!

Providing the library with your email can also be very helpful if you have children. Upon your request, we can add your email to your minor children's accounts as well. All notices will have the patron's name on it so you will know which family member it is regarding.

To get your email address added to your library account, or those of your children, please fill out the registration form on our website (choose "Go Green @ Your Library" from the Event section), call us at 309-385-4540 or talk to someone at our service desk during your next visit. Please do not post your email in a comment to our blog for your privacy & security.

*Note: If you sign up for email alerts, you will no longer receive overdue notices by United States Postal Service mail. Please be sure that you only sign up for this service if you check your email regularly.
