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!
