Chenoa Public Library has raised 50% of its goal !!
Due to our community’s tremendous support, as of November 2017, we have $403,000 in the bank for a new facility that has an expected cost of $800,000.
We are continuing our pledge drive to complete our mission of providing an accessible library to the citizens of Chenoa.
Please contact the library if you wish to help – 815-945-4253. THANK YOU.
Your financial promise to the Chenoa Public Library Building Fund is tremendously appreciated. *Contributions are tax deductible.

Tuesday, August 15th, the library will be hosting a Solar Eclipse Program at Prairie Central Primary West (formerly Chenoa Elementary School). The event is at 7:00 pm starting inside the grade school gym. All are welcome. The program will be lead by an Ambassador to NASA from the Bloomington area. After the program, solar eclipse glasses will be handed out for viewing the solar eclipse safely on August 21st. Following the program there are plans to view planets and other space features from a telescope out on the football field.
