Effingham Public Library Hours, Policies, Curbside Service

We have been able to extend the hours of service for our patrons and are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

All visitors should wear a mask.

All visitors come to the doors facing our East parking lot.

From our first floor service counters we can help with:  faxing, copying, wireless printing, notary, renewing library cards, requesting items, picking up items and summer read registration and materials.

The first floor is now open for browsing! We have also brought down a selection of items from the second floor for browsing.

There is no access to study rooms or the second floor at this time.


In addition to counter service, curbside service at the Effingham Public Library will continue indefinitely.

Requesting items online through the library’s website is the fastest and easiest solution. Go to www.effinghamlibrary.org and click on the “Search the Catalog” search bar.

Requests can also be made by phone or email. The Library will need the name that your library card is registered under and a telephone number to contact you.  Please leave a message if they cannot answer your call at: 217-342-2464 or email: info@effinghamlibrary.org

Once your request has been made, please wait for the library to contact you when they will arrange a pick-up day for your materials.

The Library’s digital resources continue to be accessible from the comfort of your home. You can access them all at www.effinghamlibrary.org./digital-content/ 

The library also has digital libraries available for non-library card-holders which can be accessed at http://www.effinghamlibrary.org/no-card-needed/

If you have questions, please call the library at 342-2464 or email info@effinghamlibrary.org
