When more assistance is needed


You can always stop by the Library any time for quick answers to your questions (or use our Live Chat service or call us at 217-586-2611), but what if you need more individual, uninterrupted help? Welcome to Book-a-Librarian!

Schedule 30 minutes of time during business hours with one of our friendly librarians in person at the Library. Or, connect with a librarian online in a private Zoom meeting (you will need a mobile device or computer and access to the Internet to take advantage of this service).

  • Downloading eBooks, audiobooks, and Digital Magazines.
  • Using the Library’s online research tools for school, business, genealogy, and other research.
  • Updating your resume or hunting for jobs.
  • Learning basic computer skills including internet navigation, using email, and printing copies.
  • Using streaming services.
