Breaking News!!

In response to the hardships placed on our communities during the COVID 19 pandemic, the River Valley District and Cordova District Libraries are here for you. We are excited to offer a temporary library card to any family that lives within the Riverdale School District #100 and does not live within any Library District’s boundaries. You may e-mail either library and we will be available to help you gain access to all of our great online resources. The temporary cards will be offered throughout the summer until our students are able to return to school.

Sorry for the delay

We here at the library have been hard at work for the past 2 weeks putting together a mail-out newsletter to area residents regarding the new policies for non-resident library cards! We are so excited to get to provide library access to any and all residents within the Riverdale School District! Keep an eye on your mailbox for your newsletter! We will be back to putting together several online newsletters each week for the remainder of our "Stay at Home" Order.
