Who We Are

Welcome to the Toulon Public Library where we strive to open new worlds for our patrons by providing information through various forms of print and digital media. We are located in Toulon Illinois, which is in Stark County, a rural area, approximately 35 miles north of Peoria. We have a well educated and energetic staff that is here 52 hours a week to assist you in finding information. As a full online member of the R.A.I.L.S. library system we have access to media, both print and digital, from across the state. Michael Baumann, Director

Our Mission Statement

Toulon Public Library District provides current, accurate, high demand, and high interest materials primarily to Toulon Library District residents by acquiring, organizing and disseminating books, non-print materials and services that help educate, enrich, entertain and inform.

The Toulon Public Library District is committed to the support of a culture of life-long learning in this community.

Our Vision Statement

Toulon Public Library District will strive to access information and materials from within and outside of our library building.  We will strive to provide and use the latest technology available with our resources.  In the future, the library will be expected to have readily available up-to-date technological tools.  The library building will need to be evaluated to determine how to best handle all of these needs of the community for technology.

The Toulon Public Library District supports the individual's right to have access to ideas and information representing all points of view.  The Board of Trustees of the Toulon Public Library District has adopted the American Library Association's LIBRARY BILL OF RIGHTS, FREEDOM TO READ and FREEDOM TO VIEW statements.
