It’s Summer!

Congratulations, Titans! Academic Year 2015-16 is officially over.

Ames Library will be open this summer, 8-4 Mondays thru Fridays. We’ll be closed Memorial Day and July 4th & 5th.

We’ll continue to post important updates on services when necessary, but we’ll be a little quieter than normal on Facebook and Instagram. As always, feel free to get in touch with the Library at 309-556-3350 or contact any of your library liaisons.

Have a safe and happy summer!olaf-in-summer
