Everything we do for you, inside the library or out.

Interlibrary Loans and Ebooks

Greenville Public Library is a member of the Illinois Heartland Library System, which encompasses 427 libraries, giving you access to over ten million items. As members of the system, our patrons have access to materials from other libraries in the system that are not available at our library. To find our library's online patron access catalog, go to www.illshareit.com and enter our zip code (62246). You will need to have your barcode and your password to log on to your account. A link is provided on the home page of this website for your convenience. The library will contact you by phone when an item(s) has been delivered, and we ask that it be picked up within five days of being notified. Any item checked out from another library is subject to that library's check out policy.

As of April 2014, the Greenville Public Library joined the Cloud Library. The Cloud library offers eBooks for download directly from the same Greenville Public Library catalog used to search for books, movies, and music. Cloud Library eBooks work on most devices, however, cannot be read on Kindle eReaders (only the Kindle Fire) at this time. Please visit the library to pick up handouts that we have prepared for our patrons. A link to the SHARE website where eBooks and eAudiobooks in the Cloud Library can be ordered is provided on the Home page of this website. Additional help with the Cloud is available at yourcloudlibrary.com, where there is information about installation and technical support. Before you install, you need to have your barcode and PIN. Choose "Illinois Heartland Library System" as your library.

 Genealogy Holdings

These are made available by the Bond County Genealogy Society. The library staff is not responsible for this area, as we only house the information. The Genealogy Room is located in the lower level of the library and requires a key that is kept at the circulation desk. The room is in memory of Barbara and Philip Morgan. A microfilm reader is available to look through records of the Greenville Advocate and the Bond County Census Records. Patrons are able to print copies from the microfilm for $0.25 a sheet.

 Outreach Activities

  The Greenville Public Library is dedicated to being a part of the Greenville community and encourages patrons to take advantage of its services. Group visitation may be arranged by contacting the library and setting a date. Delivery and pick up service is available for homebound patrons. Story time for young children is the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 am. The Library also sponsors summer programs for young children, including a reading incentive program and special events in July. For the past two years, we have also had an adult reading program with drawings for prizes.
