LIBRARY TELESCOPE PROGRAM
Seeing Stars @ the Library!
In October 2018, the Caseyville Library acquired an Orion StarBlastTM Astro Reflector Telescope with an 8-24mm zoom lens. We are now a participating member of the Library Telescope Program - a partnership with the St. Louis Astronomical Society.
This Telescope is available for FREE to checkout by library card holders in good standing. Call the Library if you are interested in learning more about the telescope program or would like to be added to the wait list.

9,272,568 BOOKS WAITING FOR YOU!
Caseyville Public Library District is a member of the Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) which is committed to sharing resources among its 487 member libraries. So you, our patrons, can have any one of 9,272,568 books, DVDs, audio recordings, or many other media, delivered to your local library in as few as 24 hours. The incredibly dedicated folks at the Illinois Heartland Library System log more than 1,000,000 miles making 70,000 stops each year in their 24 vehicles to make this happen. How do you get in on this? If you scroll down the Home page on our website (CaseyvillePublicLibrary.org), under Online Catalogs, you will see 'Share Online Catalog'. Click to access and your adventure begins. Let’s say I wanted a book on cooking for kids. I'll start with 'cooking' as my search term - that delivers 23,380 options. If I click on 'Juvenile', under Target Audience, it narrows my choices down to 2,220. I can then sort the list by popularity, publication date or other sorts. Or I can further limit the search by type of material (book, DVD, recording, etc.), publication date, and language. So I picked books written in Japanese and I got 5 to pick from. Then all I do is click on 'request it' and in a day or two I will get an email saying it’s in. (I will also need to get a book on how to read Japanese.) But hold on, it isn’t just for Japanese language cookbooks. You now have access to the New York Times best sellers, Spanish language materials from the Illinois Early Intervention Clearinghouse and many others. One of my favorites is ‘touch kits’ available from the Giertz Education Center in Champaign. One of these will give hands-on experience making pre-Columbian art. The message is clear, our Share system will have something you will be interested in and we can get it for you FREE of charge. All you have to do is log in and request it. For this journey to begin, you will need a login for this system so we know who to give the book to. Get one from the librarians if you don't have one.
