Storm Assistance and Information from FDL

How Fondulac District Library Can Help

  • We can look up information for you. Need to know something? It doesn’t matter what it is.  Let us help. Visit us or call us at 309-699-3917.
  • We have power and are happy to let you plug in to charge your cell phone or other devices.
  • We have public computers and Internet access that is free for anyone to use.  We also have free wifi.  You can use it to conduct business, find services, or follow up with family and friends.
  • Visit us to escape the elements – cold, wind, rain – or the stress for a moment or two. Read a book, the newspaper, or a magazine. Play a game. Unwind.
  • Libraries are a safe place for children and teens to explore after a storm or other disaster. And in our technological world, a good book is one of the few things that still works without batteries or a charge. (And, if you prefer audiobooks, we have some that come complete with batteries.)
  • We have copiers, scanners, and faxes for public use.
  • Check out our mini video camcorder to document damage. (Call the library for details on how to borrow it.)
