Welcome to Andalusia Township Library's website. If you don't find what you are looking for, please use the "Contact Us" feature to let us know. You may also request renewals and interlibrary loans by contacting us through this site.
Coming in October--online services for Andalusia Library card holders! You will have an online account which shows which materials you have checked out and when they are due. You will also be able to reserve and renew materials in the PrairieCat catalog at your convenience. Stop in soon to fill out an application for a new card so you will be ready!
Andalusia Library is one of 127 libraries that are members of the PrairieCat online catalog consortium. All member libraries regularly update their holdings on the catalog website. The catalog lists more than one million titles of materials in various formats including books, magazines, audio recordings, and DVDs. It also shows which libraries own a given title and if the item is currently on the shelf. The PrairieCat catalog website is http://search.prairiecat.info. Until the new automated system is up and running--if you have an Andalusia library card and wish to reserve an item in the catalog, contact the library by phone (309-798-2542), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or in person.
Many of the Quad City area libraries are not members of PrairieCat. They belong to a catalog consortium called Rivershare. If you wish to check their holdings online, go to http://rivershare.polarislibrary.com. You many use your Andalusia Library card to check out materials in person at any Quad City area library.
Andalusia Township Library is participating in the eRead Illinois Program, designed to increase access to e-books across Illinois. Initial funding for eRead Illinois was provided by a grant from Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White through the Illinois State Library.
Patrons at libraries participating in eRead Illinois will access the cloud-based delivery across a number of devices including iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows, NOOK(R) and Sony Reader(TM), and many more.
Additional information on how to access the eRead Illinois shared collection is available at the library. You must have a valid Andalusia library card to use the service. All residents of Andalusia Township are eligible for a free library card.
