Pekin Library Closed for Storm Repairs

The Pekin Public Library is closed and under repair following Saturday's severe storms.

Officials say flash flooding caused significant water damage to the library’s flooring. No books or library materials were affected.

Repairs will last throughout this week. Officials expect the library to reopen Monday, December 10.

Library patrons are advised the book drop is closed and all events this week are cancelled. Books can be returned to neighboring libraries, although no overdue fines will be issued during the repair period.
