Our Community

The Mahomet Public Library District serves Mahomet Township, Illinois, population 13,765, including the continuously growing Village of Mahomet. Our community provides the benefits of small town living, while located only 12 miles from the University of Illinois and all the cultural advantages provided by a major university.

Mahomet residents are active volunteers in the local schools, churches, and community organizations. The Mahomet-Seymour school district has award-wining athletic, music, and academic programs and the village offers a wide variety of extracurricular programs in the arts and sports through its Parks and Recreation department.

The 900-acre Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve, with two lakes, several trails and picnic areas, a golf course, a botanical garden, and the Museum of the Grand Prairie, is nestled in the heart of our township. The River Bend Forest Preserve on the other side of the village offers the county’s largest lake and a multi-use trail through the forest. Mahomet is part of Champaign County, with 23 urban and rural communites and a wide variety of events and tourist attractions. 

When you work for the Mahomet Public Library, you are not only a member of our team; you’re a member of the community.
