If you’re looking for the blue book value on a car, a source for an obscure quote, or etiquette tips for e-mail, just ask! Our professional staff is ready to assist you with your information needs, and we are ready to help – no matter what your question may be.
USE OUR COMPUTERS OR CONNECT TO WI-FI
Anyone is welcome to use the public access computers in the library. We have nine computers with FREE Internet access, word processing software, access to a printer, and more. Please see our Computer Usage policy for more information.
We also have wi-fi! Use your own computer or mobile device – no passwords are needed. Your computer must have wireless capability. Surf the ‘net and e-mail from any spot in the library.
FIND BOOKS, MOVIES, AND MORE
Our collection is searchable on-site at the Utica Public Library and is in the process of being available to be searched via computer. For assistance with the card catalog or with finding materials, please ask a librarian.
BORROW FROM OR USE OTHER LIBRARIES
If the Library does not own an item, we can attempt to borrow it from another library and have it delivered to the Utica Public Library. Some transactions will involve a fee, which is charged back to you. We will notify you before placing a request if there is a fee. A staff member will be happy to help you.
You may visit and use other participating Illinois public libraries and check out materials using your up-to-date Utica Public Library District card. Return the materials to us, and we’ll send them back to the lending library.
