4 Star Library!

The Charles B. Phillips Library proudly announces that the Library Journal has named our Library a 2018 4 Star Library.

There were 7,361 U.S. public libraries that scored on the LJ Index of Public Library Service; from there 257 were selected as Star Libraries, 21 coming from Illinois. The index is based on per capita statistics: circulation, e-circulation, visits, program attendance, and public computers users.


The staff would like to thank the community for their support in helping the library become a 4 Star Library.
