Peoria Public Library Returns To Contact-Free Services

Beginning Monday, Nov. 23 through Jan. 3, Peoria Public Library will only offer contact-free services, such as curbside pick-up, virtual programs and access to our librarians by phone or email.

This is in response to the state’s return to Tier 3 resurgence mitigations.

Public access into the buildings will be restricted through Jan. 3, but staff will be on site and available to help patrons by phone or email. Extended evening hours will be discontinued during this time so all branches will close at 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Normal Sunday hours – noon to 5 p.m. -- still apply.

· Take-home craft kits can also be requested through curbside pickup. Visit our website or social media for details.

· Outreach Services: For those who cannot leave their home due to illness or disability, Peoria Public Library offers contact-free home delivery. This service will continue, but is only available to Peoria residents. Patrons must apply by calling our Outreach Department at (309) 497-2069.

· The library’s three outdoor StoryWalks at McClure, Lincoln and North branches will continue to be open year round with a rotating display of family-friendly books, and new virtual programs – from Storytimes to craft how-tos – will be continually added to our YouTube channel.

· Patrons can also check out ebooks, audio books, watch movies and television, listen to music and access many of our digital databases via our digital library. These are available anytime with computer or WiFi access and a Peoria Public Library card.
