Welcome to the Brighton Memorial Library District

The library is a great source of information and recreation! Anyone residing within the Southwestern CUSD #9 communities of Brighton, Shipman, Medora, and Piasa is invited to visit the library and obtain a patron card. With the library card, you’ll have access to books, movies, music CDs, audiobooks, periodicals, magazines, and downloadable eBooks and eMagazines. Because our library participates in SHARE (Sharing Heartland’s Available Resources Equally), you’ll have access to over 470 libraries spanning the southern half of Illinois! We currently receive courier service four times weekly and have tubs of materials coming and going. Materials can be ordered for delivery to our library, or you can use your Brighton Memorial Library card at any participating library.

Additionally, our library is equipped with wi-fi and public use computers. Delivery or materials for disabled persons is available. Please call the library for information or assistance at 618-372-8450.
