Library Card Information:

The Tolono Public Library District serves the communities of Sadorus, Savoy, and Tolono and rural residents living between County Road 600N and 1200E or between County Road 600E and County Road 1200N (for a detailed map of this area please visit the Library). Residents who live outside this area, but whose tax dollars support Unit 7 School District, are eligible to purchase a “Non-Resident” library card for $80.00. This yearly fee allows full access to the Tolono Library and all the great things we offer.

Adults wishing to register for a new library card must bring a driver’s license or photo ID and proof of address. These forms of identification include, but are not limited to, driver’s license, utility bills, mail, or voter’s registration card. For all potential cardholders, sign-up must be completed in person at the Tolono Public Library District.

Children can apply for a library card when they turn five years old. Children under 18 must have a parent or guardian’s signature on an initial application for a library card. Children may use the proof of residency provided by their parent and/or guardian.

Items may only be checked out to patrons who produce their own library card in order for staff to access the account. When calling to inquire about an account, please have the barcode information available. Please call the library if you need assistance at (217) 485-5558.

Drop Box Locations:

We offer four locations for our patrons to drop off Tolono Public Library District items:

  • Sadorus: Drop box is outside the Post Office (123 E. Market St.)
  • Savoy: One drop box opposite the Fire Station near the Savoy Municipal Center (W. Tomaras Ave.) and one drop box at Carrie Busey School (Prairie Rose Lane)
  • Tolono: At the library on the wall to the right of the main door (111 E. Main St.)

Notice to TPL Patrons:

Tolono materials returned to the Champaign or Urbana libraries cannot be checked in and off your record until they reach Tolono Library; They use a separate automation system. This may result in accrued fines on your account. Please drop your Tolono materials either at the Tolono Public Library or one of our drop box locations.
