Effective immediately, Viola Public Library District will remain closed to the public until Governor Pritzker's shelter-at-home order expires. While we miss our patrons, we hope you are all staying home, staying safe, and remain healthy.

Please keep your materials until we tell you

it is safe to return them. The book and movie/music returns are not available

for use at this time.

The library system has suspended delivery of Inter Library Loan materials so we will not be processing hold requests. All fines accrued during this closure will be waived. We encourage patrons to continue utilizing Libby, Overdrive, and Axis 360.

This was not an easy decision for the board and library staff to make. We feel closing is the best way to support the state's efforts at social distancing and keeping our patrons and staff safe. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

If you have any questions, please contact library director Lill Batson at [email protected]
