Special Library Announcements

Good News!

This spring the KC Library will be joining a consortium of 427 libraries in Southern Illinois, which will mean changes in our library system. There are several important dates we want to share with you, in order to make the transition smooth, with minimal disruption to library services.

March 15 – April 9
    Neither patrons nor library staff will be able to place any holds for anyone.
March 22
   Any unfilled holds will be cancelled and cannot be re-established until April 9.
April 1 - 9
   We cannot make new library cards, nor can we look up library accounts
   by name. You will have to have your card with you to check any items out.
   We cannot check out books from other libraries.
Don’t be an April Fool!
   Be sure you have a library card before April 1.


Field Trip Packs

from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources

Field Trip Packs

Early childhood educators can borrow this resource here!

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Education has developed a new educator resource, and it’s ready for you to use. Field Trip Packs were developed for loan to early childhood educators (grades prekindergarten through three). Each pack is a backpack that contains hands-on equipment to encourage young children to engage in nature exploration. Suggestions for educators on how to incorporate natural-resources related topics into the curriculum are also included.

Please call the Kaskaskia College Library for further instructions to use the Field Trip Packs at (618) 545-3130
