The Library has a lot more to offer than just books. We provide the community with a variety of materials, including:
- Audiobooks on CD
- Audiobooks on Playaway (a small player with the book preloaded)
- TV on DVD
- Music CDs
- Video Games
If something you want is not available, we can have it sent from another Library through the Illinois Heartland SHARE System. In order to do this, place a hold on any item from our online catalog, ask a staff member for assistance, or call the main desk at 217-234-2621.
Researching genealogy or local history? The Library also houses Mattoon’s rare book and manuscript collections, some of which date back hundreds of years. For more information, please consult our Local History and Genealogy page.
