Robert W. Rowe library

Please note that the June Library Board of Trustees meeting has been changed to Monday, June 14 at 7:00pm.

In our commitment to make the Robert W. Rowe Public Library welcoming and accessible to everyone, we are excited to announce the installation of ADA Power Doors at our front entrance. Thanks to Secretary of State Jesse White and a Live & Learn Accessibility Grant from the State of Illinois we are going to be moving forward with this exciting new project. We are working hard to get a date for the installation of the new doors. Please keep watching our website, and our Facebook page.

It has been shown that HVAC Systems may be an important tool for reducing COVID risk in library buildings. With the safety of our patrons and staff in mind the Robert W. Rowe Public Library District has installed a Fresh Air System on our HVAC System to circulate fresh air throughout the library.

 We want to encourage people to call the library at 815-496-2031 if they are not comfortable coming to the library. We want them to know we are doing our best to accommodate and answer questions and provide all the services we can while still maintaining safety for our staff. Please continue to watch our webpage and our Library Facebook page and Instagram account for updates.

 Returned materials will no longer be quarantined. Please return materials either through the outdoor bookdrop or the book return inside the foyer. Thank you.

Pease call 815-496-2031 for more information.
