Bad Weather? Is the Library Open?

Winter can bring severe weather that can close schools and make travel hazardous. Before you venture out in the storm to visit the library, check to make sure we are open! Call (309) 497-2000 or check the website at www.peoriapubliclibrary.org.  Emergency messages are posted near the top of the home page. You can also check the closings listed on local media and our social media.

Even when Peoria Public Library is open during bad weather, you may want to save yourself the trip and use online services.  You can renew and reserve books online using the My Account button on the website. If for some reason you are unable to renew online, just call and get help over the phone from one of our staff.

Desperate for something new to read? You can download an e-book or audiobook from several different sources on our website with your library card and PIN.  You can also stream music from Freegal or find books for bored kids with or without sound and some even have games! Put your time indoors to good use and do some genealogy research with Heritage Quest or start learning a new language with Mango.

While Peoria Public Library rarely closes, it is important to remember that books can be renewed and returned when the blizzard is over and there are plenty of library resources available to you on your computer or mobile device. Keep the number handy – (309) 497-2000 and bookmark the website www.peoriapubliclibrary.org.
