    Shakespeare Movies

    In February 2016, libraries across the state will join together to celebrate #DiscoverWill:  Illinois Libraries Celebrate Shakespeare’s First Folio, and Parlin-Ingersoll Public Library will be one of them.  We will be showing Shakespeare movies every Thursday in February starting at 12:30 p.m.  No registration is required.

    The library offers free Outreach Services to homebound residents within Canton city limits.  We deliver to nursing homes, retirement communities, and to anyone who can’t visit us personally.  If you or someone you know is interested in this service, please call 647-0328 to get signed up.


    Notary Service Available

    As of June 1, 2015, Parlin-Ingersoll Public Library can now notarize documents for the public.  We have three staff members who have trained to be a Notary Public.  We hope this service will give our patrons more options for completing their paperwork needs.  Appointments are recommended.  For more info, please call 647-0328.
