Library2Go will be onsite to offer WIFI capability for Census form completion from 1:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Future events will be announced via the Library’s Facebook page and the Library2Go information line, at 309-732-7369.

Due to social distancing, there is no entry onboard Library2Go. Staff will bring items to vehicles. The WIFI signal extends around the vehicle. The change to a weekly route, instead of alternating week schedules, resulted from a survey of library cardholders.
