The Warren County Public Library District is looking for a Library Shelver to keep library stacks in order and to assist library staff. A Shelver performs a variety of tasks involved in the arrangement and order of library materials in the general maintenance and upkeep of the library.
Recently, the Library was awarded a RAILS LLSAP membership Grant. RAILS, also known as Reaching Across Illinois Library System, awards grants each year to public libraries in Illinois. This specific grant was intended to increase membership in RAILS Local Library System Automation Programs by funding start up costs for any RAILS member library that isn't currently an LLSAP member, or would like to upgrade its union list membership.
The Aqua Project began when Monmouth College's brand new Center for Business and Science finished construction. In the process of moving from the old science building, Haldeman-Thiessen Science Center, a 6-foot fish tank was donated to the Warren County Public Library along with a 3-foot filter system. A citizenship class at Monmouth College initiated this project with the assistance of chemistry professor Brad Sturgeon.
