Pekin Library Resumes Limited Hours

Pekin’s public library is open for limited hours for the first time since storm damage shuttered the building in early December.

Family storytime resumes Mondays at 6:00 p.m. Regular weekly programming for infants and toddlers is set for Tuesdays through Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. Additional community classes will begin January 7, 2019.

Patrons are urged to check the Pekin Public Library’s Facebook page or website for the most current updates and class times.

Library Director Jeff Brooks says flash flooding caused significant water damage to flooring and drywall December 1. No books or other library materials were damaged, but repairs are expected to last through the end of January.

Normal operating hours will not resume until repairs are complete.
