Hopefully soon, the library will be able to open our doors and the world will approach something a little closer to normal. Until then, we are still here to serve you through our porch pickup service. Items can be ordered online or by phone, and faxes, copies, and notary service can be accessed through porch pickup. Items can also be borrowed from other libraries through interlibrary loan. If you are not sure what you would like to read, we would be happy to help you make selection. Patrons with a valid library card can access eBooks and eAudiobooks on the Cloud Library app 24/7. Call 618-378-3713 or go online at ncpp.illshareit.com to order items. [Read more...]

FOP Lodge 249's Cops and Kids Christmas and Huck's Karing for Kids programs were a tremendous success again this year in spite of this being the worst year ever! Although we were not able to shop with the children, which is always a blast, we were able to deliver clothes and gifts to the doorsteps of 70 kids on Christmas Eve. The children also received Huck's goody bags stuffed with free food coupons, toys and snacks.
The donations from our community, including monetary, clothes, and toys, far exceeded what we anticipated to come in during this pandemic. The excitement on the children's faces when they realized the bags full of gifts being dropped off were for them was absolutely priceless. I am truly amazed at the giving spirit of this community whether it be individuals, businesses, organizations or churches. Again, thank you all, our community, for being so caring and charitable. May God bless you all this coming year.
Just in time for the cold winter months the Michael Hillegas Veterans Chairman Shelia Albright delivers items to help keep Veterans cozy warm. She delivered ten large bags containing lap blankets, sweat shirts, sock hats and hygiene products to Maria Buehler, VA Voluntary Service Officer. Michael Hillegas daughters (DAR) and other friends of the veterans donated the items.
