Want To Get a Library Card?

If you live outside of Limestone Township but in the Herscher School District, you may qualify for our Non-Resident card that is good for a one year period. There is a fee off $135 per year for the card, which is the average amount of tax paid per househould within our township. It is possible to split the payment into two parts of $67.50 each.
Those residing in Bonfield/Salina Township are served by the Fossil Ridge Library District (FRLD). For more information, please email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you have a card, you can use it at any library in the area. If you cannot find the book you are looking for, we can search the Prairiecat catalog or our Out of System catalog.
