Explore More Illinois:

Makes it possible for member libraries to offer free passes, discounted admission, and other deals from a wide variety of Illinois cultural attractions to library cardholders.

This program will be provided as a service to our member libraries, and there will be no cost for Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS) libraries to participate.

Explore More Illinois is a new program developed and managed by RAILS. It is separate and distinct from the Museum Adventure Pass administered by Libraries First.

How it works

Cardholders will reserve all passes/discounts online. See library for any questions!

 2023 News - Toulon Public Library

 Hi, Everyone! As the director of the Toulon Public Library I would like to take a moment to tell everyone who we are and welcome them personally to our online home. We are a small, rural, public library district located approximately 35 miles north of Peoria in the Heart of Illinois that is a member of the Reaching Across Illinois Library System. Even though we are a small library, we have access to millions of volumes of print and digital media through our library system. Usually, we can locate any book/DVD/audio within a week. We serve 2700 people in our library district as well as many others from the surrounding area.  

Our library was first founded in 1891 and moved into a permanent home with the help of Andrew Carnegie in 1915. Through private donations and a state Live and Learn construction grant our new building opened in August of 2012. We are the only ADA accessible library in our county. We have free WI-FI with no password needed as well as 12 computers for public use. Please feel free to stop in to the Toulon Public Library where we strive to open new worlds for both our patrons and our community. Michael Baumann, Director
