New Calendar of Events
Spring Registration Now Open
We've upgraded our online calendar of events! Our new site is modern, visually dynamic, and scalable to your mobile device. Events will be clearly labeled on the calendar view as Registration Open, Registration Full, or Waiting List Open. You can also see how many seats are still available for each event requiring registration. We’ve also kept some features you’re used to, including color-coded events: dark blue for adults, green for teens, and purple for children. We know you’ll love it as much as we do.


New Meeting Room Reservation System
We have a new, more user-friendly way for groups to make meeting room reservations. Our new system does not require creating an account or an organization listing; groups may simply choose a date and time and fill out a short form with their information.

As before, all reservations must be affiliated with a Winfield community group or organization, reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance, and reservations may be made for the current 90 days on a rolling basis. However, going forward, all reservations will be for the entire meeting room.

If you had an upcoming reservation approved under the old system, it has been transferred to the new system.


New York Times on PressReader
PressReader has started offering an image edition of the New York Times for library patrons. This edition is laid out exactly like the physical paper, for those who want an experience more similar to a print subscription.

Click here to log in to PressReader. Make sure to click "Library or Group," and log in with your Winfield Library card number and password. Access to the web-based digital edition is still available, if that is your preference. The permanent links to PressReader and the NYT web-based edition are at the bottom of this page.

The following tax forms are now available near the upstairs service desk. Please note, these are the only forms we anticipate receiving; you may print other forms from our public computers for $0.10 per page.

Congratulations, Nuccia!
Our children's librarian, Nuccia Choate, was nominated for this year's "I Love My Librarian" award! This award invites library users to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, and academic librarians.

Her nomination noted that Nuccia has been "a superb, caring, children's librarian for years...showing her commitment to her library and her community." We couldn't agree more! Nuccia was honored by the nomination, saying, "Although I did not win, it was indeed an honor to be considered. What we do in libraries does make a difference in our community every day."


Explore More Illinois is Live!
Explore More Illinois allows you to get offers from museums, performing and visual arts centers, and other attractions with your Winfield Library card. Offers differ between attractions, but with a library card and the pass, library members will receive free admission or discounts. Because offers through Explore More Illinois are regularly changing, it is best to visit their website to see which attractions have current offers available. Just log in with your 14-digit library card number and the same password you use for our catalog, Libby, and hoopla.
