The Geneva Public Library District is currently celebrating our 116th year of service in this community. We are committed to serve each citizen by providing access to the universe of information which contributes to the intellectual, social, cultural and recreational growth of the individual. The Library offers a variety of materials and programming for all ages. Whether you are a parent of a young reader, a job seeker, a student or just going on vacation, the library has materials and services for you.
The Youth Services department provides a wealth of reading materials for young readers of all levels. In both the youth and adult departments, patrons can get expert advise on what to read from our dedicated staff. Adults seeking bestselling books and movies will find that the Library purchases multiple copies to meet demand. Audio Books on CD or download ables (in the adult and youth areas) are also available.
The Library offers high-speed Internet service and printing capability in black and white as well as color. We also subscribe to many electronic resources for students, job seekers or business owners. Access to these subscription databases and more are available to our cardholders 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through our website.
Our programming serves all ages, from early childhood to seniors. We have recently expanded our services to the business community and now offer all business owners in our service distribute the opportunity to have a library card. We also are available for reference by appointment where we can help you "Put your business on the Map" using Google and Yahoo, as well as find new customers.

As a business owner in Geneva I received a library card from the Geneva Public Library. I am been so impressed by the professionalism of the library staff and their willingness to help me understand all of the vast resources they have available. I have been amazed by the their generosity and their smiles.... always ready and willing to answer any question or find the person who can help! If you have not been to the library lately, take a trip to experience the world of information right at your fingertips!
