Library News

A BIG Thank-You to everyone that donated items and/or baskets for our basket raffle.  We had 8 wonderful baskets to raffle!  Thanks so much to everyone that purchased raffle tickets, your support for the library is greatly appreciated!!  Our goal was to make $1,000 from the Craft/Vendor Sale, and Basket Raffle, which we surpassed.  Thanks to our awesome supporters, we made $1,100!  We plan to spend this money on equipment for our new makerlab space, which will be a technology based space, with a sound booth, photography equipment, 3D printing, and computers.  Exciting things ahead!!  Here are the basket raffle winners and the donor of the baskets they won :

Jeannie Challacombe - Wendy Fowler;  Paula Callear - Faithful Friends Preschool; Kelly Fletcher - The General Store; Rita Maddex - Brimfield Public Library; Jennifer Metz - Brimfield Boosters Club; Donna Rahn - Sugar Daddy's; Susan Sandhagen - Village of Brimfield; Bonnie Short - Brimfield Insurance Agency, and Rookies; Sarah Ziemba - Vendors from Craft &Vendor Sale   

There is a large recycle container located on the south side of the library near the alley for all library district residents to use.  This is co-mingle service, so no need to separate anything.  Please check the label on the container for the list of accepted items. Please, NO GLASS, as it will probably get broken and there are people sorting at the Galva plant!

Brimfield Public Library is also proud to sponsor recycling for residents in the Kickapoo area!  There are two large containers located near the Kickapoo Township building just off Rt. 150 in Kickapoo.  Brimfield Public Library sponsors one container, and Kickapoo Township sponsors the other. This is the same service as in Brimfield, with co-mingle recycling, so no separating is needed.  Click on Community Recycling in the Quick Links box for more information, or check the signs on the containers for a list of accepted items. 

To insure this awesome service continues in our community, please follow all recycling rules, such as, breaking down boxes, making sure your items are on the accepted-items list, not overfilling the container, or leaving items outside the container.  Thanks for your cooperation!  Happy Recycling!!   


Illinois Law requires library staff to adhere to the privacy law regarding your library account information.  This includes registration records, circulation records, and releasing on-hold items.  On-hold items are released only to the person whose card was used to place the hold.  If you want others (spouses, children, etc.) to have access your account, including picking-up your on-hold items, you will need to sign a permission form for our files.  Forms are available at the circ desk.  Thanks for your cooperation!
