"PAWS TO READ" Donations Continue Until Dec 20, 2014

As we migrate into Fall and the holidays, PLEASE DON'T FORGET the homeless pets at the Animal Shelters.
The Kankakee County Humane Foundation of St Anne, IL, would welcome your donations to help the animals waiting there.

E-Books At The Library

The Edward Chipman Public Library offers e-book service to patrons within the library district. The e-books are free, only requiring a valid library card to participate. To determine if you are in our library district, "Edward Chipman Library District" will be listed on your voter's card or real estate tax bill. The library district is not the same as the school district. To see how to obtain a library card go to the "How Do I..?" section on the left side of this website.

To access the e-book program, go directly to the Edward Chipman Library e-book site at

Curbside Service

What is Curbside Service? Curbside service is an on-going service provided to patrons unable to physically come into our library. Give us a call to request the titles you would like; call again to let us know you are curbside and we will bring your items out to your vehicle and take the returned items.
Perhaps you have a baby or children asleep in their car seats and don't wish to disturb them. Curbside service is available.

Please call 815-472-2581.
