Floor Maps for Fondulac District Library


Fondulac District Library provides current, accurate, high demand, and high interest materials primarily to district residents by acquiring, organizing, and disseminating books, non-print materials, and services that help educate, enrich, entertain, and inform.

Fondulac District Library is committed to the support of a culture of lifelong learning in this community.


Fondulac District Library was established through the efforts of the East Peoria Woman’s Club in June 1935. Within a few months, it outgrew its original location and was moved several times over the next 70 years to increasingly larger spaces in order to meet growing community needs. In 2009, district residents approved a 7 million dollar bond referendum to build a new library facility.
In November 2013, the library opened in its current location in a new 32,000-square-foot building, designed as a library, as part of the East Peoria Civic Complex in the Levee District.

The library’s goal is to provide the best service possible, and the library continues to expand its services to meet the community’s needs.
