Seeking Volunteers

We are looking for a group of hardworking and dedicated volunteers to help us clean out our gardens! We will be weeding and cleaning out the beds throughout the summer. Volunteers must be able to handle a lot of physical activity, including bending, lifting, kneeling, and tolerate some weather fluctuations. A volunteer form is available at our service desk. Please indicate gardens/outside assistance on the form if you'd like to help.

If you have a green thumb and are able to physically help please contact the library at 815-335-7050 or our volunteer coordinator Dale Bowen at 815-721-1799.

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee


The Winnebago Public Library has already pre-ordered two copies of Harper's second book "Go Set a Watchman". If interested, contact our service desk at 815-335-7050 to place a hold. The book is set to be released July 2015.

If you're anxious to re-read or would like to give her first book a try the library has three printed copies of "To Kill a Mockingbird" as well as the audiobook.

Knitting Club Announcement

Gauge and Gab Knitting Club will be meeting each Tuesday at 6:30 pm.

Don't feel like knitting or crocheting bulky scarves and sweaters in these warm months? That's OK, because this month we're focusing on "kitchen stitches" - towels, dishcloths, potholders, and anything else you can hang on an oven door. Kitchen projects make great gifts and are ideal for beginning knitters.Don't know how to knit? We'd be happy to teach you!

How to get a library card

Do you and your kids have updated library cards? Winnebago Public Library District cards need to be renewed every two years. Perhaps you've never signed up for a card before?

To sign up for a card, simply bring in one form of photo ID and one form of non-photo ID (see lists below) any time the library is open. Children under the age of 18 years old will need to have their parent's produce documentation on their behalf. We will ask you to fill out a registration card and enter you into our system.
