The library is gearing up for Summer Reading, there are two bulletin boards and registration has begun. There is a large glass display case near the check out desk with items of interest from around the globe to go along with the “Have Book Will Travel” theme.
There is a comfortable reading area with newspapers and magazines and large tables for work or study. Free wifi is available with your electronic devices. For those interested in early Monticello there are many historic pictures of downtown in the 1800s in a glass wall display.
Although the library building is not large with a library card customers have free access to materials in other libraries, Illinois state archives, genealogy resources and many more helpful sites. This library is a great place to visit this summer.
