Welcome to our Library

Milledgeville, Illinois, is a small community (population 1,100) located in the northwest corner of Illinois. The Milledgeville Public Library was built in 1923 in the prairie style and erected in memory of an early educator, Mary Fletcher.

Our library collection includes 10,000 books, both fiction and nonfiction, one hundred DVDs and 100 books on CD and tape. We are now able to provide e-books at no cost to our patrons through a grant from the Illinois State Library. If we don’t have a book you need, we can get it through interlibrary loan. We can also supply copy and fax services. We are also excited to announce that we are in the process of putting our library catalog online.
