National Friends of the Library Week October 19-25

October 19-25, 2014, is the ninth celebration of National Friends of Libraries week making it a good time to publicly thank the Friends of the Winnebago Public Library who contribute so much to significantly enhance our services. Our current Friends group began in 2004. Over the course of the past ten years they have donated more than $18,000 to support programming, collections, equipment, and furniture. One of their major fund raisers is happening this week-the Spook-tacular Book & Bake Sale October 24 & 25.

How to get a library card

Do you and your kids have updated library cards? Winnebago District cards need to be renewed every two years. 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. Let us help you start the school year off right!

Acceptable proofs of current residency:

Photo ID, Driver's license, State ID, Firearms ID.

Nonphoto ID: Bill (current or last months credit card or utility), auto

Library's Opening New Doors Project

The Winnebago Public Library has been awarded a $10,000 Live & Learn Construction Grant through the Illinois State Library. The grant will partially fund the Library's Opening New Doors project to install automatically opening telescopic sliding doors at the outside and lobby entrances to the library, providing independent ease of access to community members with mobility impairments.

One of the grant requirements are matching funds from local sources. A generous bequest from the Margaret Van Sickle estate is providing the matching funds for the project.
