Your Library Card


Library cards are provided free of charge to all residents of Clinton Township, as part of your tax-supported library services. Your card gives you borrowing privileges here and at most public libraries in Illinois, access to special online resources, and more. Click here to learn how to get a library card.

Interlibrary Loan


If you need a book, DVD, or other item that we don't have or is currently checked out, you can go to the online catalog, "PrairieCat" to place a hold on the item.  PrairieCat can be accessed through this website by clicking on the Catalog tab located at the top of the page.  Reserved items must be picked up within three library business days after you are called or emailed, as other patrons may be on the waiting list.

Various events and programs are scheduled throughout the year.   See our calendar for details.
