Your library card provides access not only to all the materials at the O'Fallon Public Library, but to over 9.5 million items shared by the Illinois Heartland Library System (over 470 libraries covering roughly 28,000 square miles throughout Central and Southern Illinois).
These items can be easily requested at the library or from home through our online catalog. The default username to sign-in to the online catalog is your library card number, and the password is the last 4-digits of your phone number. Once you are logged in, you may change them to whatever you like. You can place requests, renew items, pay fines, and check on due dates all from the online catalog!
If you still can't find what you are looking for, please let a staff member know. We can place special Interlibrary Loan requests for you at no charge.
Computer Access & Faxing/Scanning
Seventeen internet and print accessible computers are located on the first floor and are freely available for use by O'Fallon Public Library cardholders. Three additional computers are available in the Teen Room for those ages 12 to 18. Those without an O'Fallon Library card can use a computer for up to 30 minutes per day for free.
