Happy Thanksgiving

The Board of Trustees and staff of the Elizabeth Township Public Library wishes you a wonderful Thanksgiving. We will be closed on Thursday and Friday.

Weather Closing

 Today, November 21st, the library will be closed due to the snow and bad travel conditions. Stay home, stay warm, stay safe and we will see you Monday.

Closing for Meeting

On October 15, 2015 the library will be closed from 5 PM until 6 PM for a meeting. We will reopen at 6 PM or shortly before and remain open until our normal closing time of 7 PM.

A Special Invitation to Louis L'amour and Zane Grey Readers:

We are now accepting bids for special collections of western books by Louis L’amour, Loren Zane Grey and Zane Grey. The Louis L’amour books are two separate selections; the Sackett Collection (4 books) and 42 of his other popular titles. We have a 3 book set by Loren Zane Grey. Zane Grey’s books have been split into four sections; a set of 1, a set of 4, a set of 2 and a set of 31. Please come into the library to see the collections and submit your sealed bid. Bids must be received at the library by November 11, 2015 by 5:00 P.M.

Library Update

We had re-opened a little more than two weeks ago and all is well. The books are back in order, and the tech equipment is working fine. If you have not had a chance to stop in, please do so.

We have some new books that have just arrived:
Friction Sandra Brown
Make Me Lee Child
Solomon Curse Clive Cussler
The Keeper David Baldacci
and many more. . .

Library Opening

 We are almost there! Our books have arrived, and we are working to get them back in place. We will be open on Monday, August 31st at 1:00 p.m. and look forward to seeing you soon!


We are moving forward with our remodeling schedule with our last day of business being August 8, 2015. Books checked out from now until August 8th will be due on September 3, 2015 so that you don't have to worry about the books being overdue or fines incurred. We will be checking the book drops so you can still return books outside the library. Please communicate with us during this project through our Facebook page, our webpage or by e-mail at elizabethtownshiplibrary@gmail.com.

Remodeling Project

Our remodeling plans are starting to come together. Our first day of closure will be August 10th, and we are anticipating the project to be about three weeks long. Hopefully, we will be re-opening on August 31, 2015. We are arranging with RAILS to have books that were ordered delivered to the Galena Public Library. We will still be within reach through this page, our Facebook page, by phone at 815-858-2212, or by e-mail at elizabethtownshiplibrary@gmail.com.

Remodeling Project

The Elizabeth Township Public Library is preparing for a new look. For part of August, the library will be closed (more details to follow) during the project.

As we prepare, we are trying to create more space and save costs. We are offering our paperback section of books to you. Please come in and look at our collection of authors. You are welcome to take as many as you like. Please check them out at the front desk so that we can be certain they have been removed from our circulation.

More details about the remodeling project will be made available as they develop and are confirmed.

Summer Reading Program

Our Summer Reading Program is over for this season but we had great fun "Reading to the Rhythm". We learned about music and made joyous noise with our whistles, maracas, and clackers. A special thank you to the parents who support and help us with this program; we appreciate all that you do for us. We always end each reading program looking forward to the next one.
