Welcome to the library!

Sign up for Summer Reading today!

2019’s theme is It’s Showtime at your Library! Get registered on Beanstack and start logging your reading June 1. There’s something for everyone!


The Wood River Public Library serves the community of Wood River. We are a proud member of the Illinois Heartland Library System which allows us access to over 500 libraries in central and southern Illinois. Our library offers events, programs, and reading challenges all year round for patrons of all ages. You don’t have to be a Wood River resident to enjoy all that we offer!

For more information on any of the programs and events featured below, check out our Calendar of Events, our Facebook page, or call us!


2nd Annual Pie in the Face Fundraiser!

This year’s participants are department heads and city officials for the City of Wood River. If you want to see someone get a pie in the face, drop some spare change in their jar at the library. The person with the most money will get a pie at our Kick Off Party on June 4 at 6:00!
