Policy on Carrying Guns on Library Property

"The Robert R. Jones Public Library follows Illinois State Law which prohibits the carrying of any weapon, concealed or partially concealed, in the library building or on library property. Any violators will be reported to law enforcement and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."


History Tidbit
The Robert R. Jones Public Library was begun as a tax-supported township library by voter referendum in 1967.  However, the Coal Valley Unit, Homemaker's Extension Association began a library as a community service project in the early 1940s.  The library had no permanent home, and the collection was stored in garages and other facilities when no suitable location could be secured.
