Are you an Oglesby Library patron? Do have an adventurous spirit or like to engage in experiences with your family or firends? Whether you like the quiet exploration of a museum or are looking for something fun to do with the kids or love the cheer of a crowd at sporting events, Expore More Illinois might just be for you! 

Your Oglesby Public Library card is your passport to online access to free or discounted tickets to museums, science centers, sporting events, zoos, park districts, theaters, and other fun cultural venues around the state.  Other offerings may include a percentage off  gift shop purchases or a "little something extra" when you purchase a meal.  Each venue sets the rules amd limitations so read each offering carefully.  For example, some offers are limited to specific libraries.

Patrons may only have three active reservations at a time.  Reservations can be made up to three months in advance. Patrons receive a confirmaton email once a reservation is made, a reminder email three days before the reservation and a survey email three days after the reservation date. It is recommended to download a pass right before you are ready to use it as the reservation cannot be cancelled after the pass is downloaded. 

If you have trouble logging in to the Explore More Illinois website with your library card, reach out to Oglesby Public Library at 815-883-3619. Remember, when logging into the Explore More Illinois website, you will need your library card number. The pin is the last four digits of your library card unless you have changed it. Explore and have fun!
