PAWS to READ Summer Reading Program

The Edward Chipman Public Library District urges families to gallop, crawl, slither, or fly to the library for Paws to Read!
The Library launches its Paws to Read! Summer Reading Program on Monday June 9, 2014. As we participate in this summer reading program, the library will host a range of free activities for children, and Jr High kids that encourage and support a love of reading. Participants also can win prizes for reaching their reading goals.

Edward Chipman Public Library brings access to e-books to the community through the eRead Illinois Program

Edward Chipman Public Library is participating in the eRead Illinois Program, designed to increase access to e-books across Illinois. Illinois Heartland Library System and Reaching Across Illinois Library System have partnered with the Illinois State Library and Baker & Taylor to provide this access. eRead Illinois is a two year statewide program designed to increase access to e-books for Illinois residents and grow e-book expertise among library staff, library system staff, and Illinois residents.

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 and we will bring your items out to your vehicle and take the returned items. Those with young children may use our curbside service. Little ones remain in the vehicle safe from the cold.
