Remodeling Project

The Elizabeth Township Public Library is preparing for a new look. For part of August, the library will be closed (more details to follow) during the project.

As we prepare, we are trying to create more space and save costs. We are offering our paperback section of books to you. Please come in and look at our collection of authors. You are welcome to take as many as you like. Please check them out at the front desk so that we can be certain they have been removed from our circulation.

More details about the remodeling project will be made available as they develop and are confirmed.

Summer Reading Program

Our Summer Reading Program is over for this season but we had great fun "Reading to the Rhythm". We learned about music and made joyous noise with our whistles, maracas, and clackers. A special thank you to the parents who support and help us with this program; we appreciate all that you do for us. We always end each reading program looking forward to the next one.

Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program is half over but keep reading . . . that should last all summer. We are having fun "Reading to the Rhythm".


Our Summer Reading Program kicks off Friday, June 5 at 10 AM.  Come join us for stories, activities and treats.  See you there where will "Read to the Rhythm".

Summer Reading Program

"Read to the Rhythm" is coming to the Elizabeth Township Public Library for our Summer Reading Program. Save the dates - June 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th for music and reading fun. Stay tuned for more details!

Emergency Closing

The Library policy is that if River Ridge School is closed so are we.  Due to snow and extreme temperatures today February 2nd we will be closed.  This will allow for snow removal teams to do their work and keep our patrons and employees safe. 

Fines for items due today will be waived.  We will reopen on Wednesday, February 4th at 1 PM.

Stay safe, stay warm.


As many of you have noticed from recent newspaper articles, we have expanded our services and offerings thanks to a generous grant from Reaching Across Illinois Library System of which we are member. One of the benefits to you as patrons is that you can now do many things from your own computers and devices. You can now search the PrairieCat holdings for items you wish to borrow, place your own holds and renew your checked out items.

Stop in to see us for more details and information on how to use the system. 


Today, January 8th, we will be closing at 5:30 PM due to the extreme weather.  We will reopen tomorrow at 9 AM. 

Holiday Hours

We will be closed December 24th and 25th for Christmas.  And will reopen December 26th at 9 AM.

For New Years we will be closed on January 1st and reopen Jan 2nd at 9 AM.


Mrs. Claus Is Coming to the Library!!!
