The Galesburg Public Library Staff are still working to provide support to our community during this challenging time.

The Library collection includes:

  • The Alliance Digital Media Library collection of ebooks and audiobooks, accessible via the Overdrive and Libby apps,

  • Additional ebooks and audiobooks through eReadIllinois, Biblioboard, and Tumblebooks,

To access these resources, your students will need 

A) a Galesburg Public Library card number 

B) a PIN. 

Students who do not currently have Galesburg Public Library cards may contact the library by emailing, to receive a temporary card number.

In order to receive a temporary card number, a student must submit the following information via email to

  • Proof of current school enrollment (photo of student ID, screen capture from Skyward, etc.)

  • Full name

  • Birth-date

  • Mailing address

  • Telephone number

The library staff will create a temporary library card for the student and mail it to the student's home address. 

If you have any questions, please contact the library at
