The Beecher Community Library houses well over 23.000 titles. Our books are divided into several sections and genres to make looking for what you need easier. In the adult section we have large print fiction, general fiction, mysteries, biographies, nonfiction, trade paperbacks, westerns, graphic novels, science fiction, and a section on Illinois history. You can keep with what's new at the library on our new arrivals shelf.
In our juvenile section, we have children's picture books, easy readers, board books, and paper backs. For the older readers, we have junior fiction, paperbacks, biographies, and nonfiction.
Get stuff done even while you are "reading" by listening to audio books. Our collection consists of fiction titles for adults and juniors.
