Update (3/17/20):  As of 8 pm, Tuesday, March 17, the O'Fallon Public Library is closed to the public.  During the last couple days we have tried to provide limited library services while keeping patrons and staff safe from the spread of disease.  With new recommendations and mandates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Library Association, we realize that the time for half-measures has passed. 

While we are champions for libraries and the valuable service they provide to communities, we recognize that no library service is more important than protecting the health of both our patrons and employees. Keeping the library open sends a message that it is safe to come in, sadly it is not.   We do not want to violate the trust you put in us by sending mixed messages.

During this shutdown:

  • No library items are due (keep your items until we reopen)
  • No fines will be assessed
  • Kids Stay-at-Home Resources available
  • Digital resources are still available (see ebooks & More for a variety of options)
  • Requests will remain in active status until services resume

Thank you for your support and understanding during these unique times.  We look forward to serving you at full capacity when this pandemic is over.

Stay well,

Ryan Johnson
Library Director
