The objective of the Willow Springs Public Library is to provide books and other materials to support the educational and recreational demands of our patrons.

Library Cards

To obtain a library card, you must have a valid form of identification with your current address.

  •    All residents within city limits are entitled to a library card free of charge. 
  •    All residents outside city limits may obtain a library card by paying a $5.00 annual fee.
  •    All cards must be renewed annually. There is a replacement fee of $0.50 for lost cards.


Check Outs

Each card is limited to a maximum of 10 items to be checked out at a time. All items may be renewed by phone or in person, but any late fees (fines) accrued prior to that renewal will remain.

All fines must be paid before any additional items may be checked out.  There is a $0.10 per day (not including Sundays, Mondays, and holidays) fine for all overdue items. Damaged items must be paid for (up to the replacement cost) before any additional items may be checked out.
