If any cards are blocked within that association with fees/fines in excess of $5.00, no other cards may be used in the household until the charges are taken care of.
Non-residents who live outside Pana city limits may obtain a library card for the current yearly fee of $60.00. This fee covers everyone who lives in your household.
Valid cards from Carnegie Schuyler Library that have no blocks may be used at any other library that is a member of the Illinois Heartland Library System. Patrons may also order items from other libraries.
