Thank you to the Friends of the Library!

The Oglesby Public Library staff would like to extend a warm thank you to the Friends of the Library for funding our recent "Incredible Bats" program as well as our new public catalog computer. The work the Friends do for the library is greatly appreciated at all times, but we can't thank them enough for these generous donations!

Thank you!

Annual Food for Fines Program

November 10-22

Supporting area food pantries, the annual area library Food for Fines program is happening at Jacobs Library(IVCC), LaSalle, Peru, Oglesby, Richard A. Mautino, Putnam County, and Graves-Hume.

Between November 10-22, the libraries accept food donations towards payment of library fines. Each food item pays $1.00 in library fines up to 25 food items per overdue library/patron card. Donated food is only for overdue fines.

Suggested food items include cereal, canned fruits & vegetables, soups, rice, peanut butter, Jell-O and tuna.

For food safety, food must be in their original, unoped packaging. Homemade items, perishable items or glass containers are not accepted.

Thank you for Supporting the Illinois Valley Food Pantry!
