In light of recently released IDPH guidelines and to protect the health and well-being of our patrons and staff, the Vespasian Warner Public Library District will return to Contactless Curbside Service, until further notice, beginning on Friday, November 20. Important services such as check-out, notary, fax, copy/printing, grab ‘n go craft kits, and more will still be available using a convenient, curbside service. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide library services while keeping our community and staff as safe as possible.
