The Vespasian Warner Public Library is a gem of architecture in the middle of Illinois. But, we're not just a pretty face. In addition to a peaceful, tranquil setting, the library offers public access computers free of charge, wi-fi, a fax machine, and a notary on staff 68 hours a week.

The library also offers eBooks and eMagazines that can be accessed from home with your library barcode and pin number. Databases can be accessed from home 24/7 on such wide ranging subjects as how to repair your car (with diagrams!) to the value of antiques.

In conjunction with Judge Bryant and a grant from the Illinois Coalition for Equal Justice, we have a computerized Legal Self-Help Center that is specifically geared for DeWitt County.

There are three meeting rooms that are available. We are part of the Illinois Heartland Library System, which is the largest library consortia in the United States. What does this mean to you? More Books! More DVDs! More CDs!

For historians, the library houses the DeWitt County Genealogical Society's collection and is a site for Looking for Lincoln Wayside Exhibits. There is so much more to mention, but come and see the beauty of the building and while you are here, look at all the things the Vespasian Warner Public Library has to offer you.
