The Carrollton Public Library was built
in 1902, one of the 105 Carnegie Libraries built in Illinois.
Our Collection includes around 18,000 books, 50 magazine subscriptions,
and 5 newspapers. Past years of the local paper are available
on microfilm for viewing in the library. We have a genealogy
section, an Illinois History section, and a Reference section
as well as extensive holdings on the Civil War.
Because we are a member of the Lewis & Clark Library System,
our library has access to Interlibrary Loan Services for our
cardholders. Patrons may sign up to reserve popular titles. We
carry large-print books and have access to Talking Books. Videos
and audios are available to be checked out. Computers are available
for research, typing, and Internet use. We host a preschool children's
story hour Friday during the school year.
Our Summer Reading program is popular for the older children
