Pan Returns, Front Doors Closed and Food for Fines!

Important Week of Events!
Pan returns on Wednesday, April 1st
This is not an April Fool's Joke! Our little woodland creature that has been missing from the center of our fountain for the last six months is returning to his home on Wednesday, April 1st at noon. It will take a couple of hours to place him in the center of the fountain so if you would like to be apart of his historic return, please join us in the front of the Collinsville Library.
Front doors of the Collinsville Library closed for renovation
For the next two weeks when you come to the Collinsville Library, you will want to park in the large East parking lot and enter the Library through the Community Room doors. The front doors have been removed for renovation and the entrance is boarded up. We are sorry for the inconvenience but the doors were sorely in need of a new coat of finish.
Food for Fines has returned
From today until April 11th you can bring in a nonperishable food item or a hygiene item and we will take $1 off of your fines for every item you bring in. This is happening at the Collinsville Library Center and at the Fairmont City Library Center. This offer is not good toward payment of nonreturned library items or processing fees. Great time of the year to help the needy in our community and to help yourself as well. All donations go to the local food pantry.

Library Store - A Sale Everyday!


There is a richness in the library that can keep a person busy for hours, even days! Just by using your Library Card you can take home entertainment and resources in the form of books, dvds, audios plus you can also download virtual ebooks and audios at home as well as solve homework through the use of our databases.


But there is another aspect of the library behind the scenes that people can take advantage of and we have found a way to let you look at this other side of the Library more than just once a year at our Book Sales.


On the Main Floor of our Library located in the South Wing adjacent to the Main Desk is


our Library Store.


It has items to buy such as calendars, pens, library bags and other small items. There are also hardcover books, paperback books, videos, 33 1/3 records, and older editions of books that can help you build your collection at home for very reasonable prices.


This small area is changing constantly with bargains for you to purchase. The staff rotates items constantly so keep coming back because every day will be different.
