As cold weather approaches, remember the library is a warm place to hang out!
Come in, check out a stack of books to read at home, or curl up in one of our comfy chairs! We also have newspapers, board games, puzzles, and coloring pages.
We open at 10am every day except Sundays. We close at 5pm Mondays and Fridays, 8pm Tuesdays through Thursdays, and 4pm Saturdays. If the library is closing due to wintry weather, we will have it posted on our website and facebook page, and a sign on our door if possible.
If you can’t make it in, visit our eBook catalog and use your library card to check something out to read. You can read books on the Axis 360 app or even read them online!
If you must travel, check out Illinois Department of Transportation’s Winter Road Conditions website. You can see if roads you wish to travel are reported to be clear of ice and snow, covered with patches of ice and snow, or snow or ice covered.
The library has a monthly email newsletter about our events. It usually goes out on the first of the month. If you’re not getting it and you would like to, click the link below to sign up for the next one!
Bat naturalists, Dan and Sharon Peterson return to Oglesby Library on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 6 – 7 PM with a program that will educate and entertain you with exciting facts about bat species!

Along with bats of the world they will show slides of native species in Illinois and discuss the difficulties facing our natural bat species and what can be done to conserve them.
After the lecture, the performer will display live bats and other unique animals and answer questions.
