Tis the season for the Third Annual Holiday Open House at the Millstadt Library! Thursday, December 5th, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.! We’ll have attendance prizes, a library-card sign-up prize, and a Millstadt Food Pantry Donation prize giveaway. Winners will be announced at 7:00 that night and you don’t have to be present to win! We’ll also have a hot chocolate bar and cookies.

The Millstadt community Choir will sing carols at 6 p.m. and be sure to bring your little ones to meet and have pictures with Santa too!

For more information or any questions check out our Facebook page @MillstadtLibrary, our website,, give us a call at 476-1887, or stop by in person at 115 West Laurel Street, Millstadt Illinois.

There are three ways to win a prize during our Open House:


  • If you sign up for a library-card anytime between November 7th and December 5th, you will be entered into the Library Card Sign-Up drawing. One winner will receive a $25 gift card from IGA.
  • Anyone who attends the Open House will be entered into the Attendance Prize drawings.
  • We want to help the Millstadt Food Pantry better serve our community, therefore, anyone who brings an item that night for donation will have a chance to win a prize from a separate drawing. The more items you bring, the more chances to win!

Winners will be announced at 7:00 that night and you don’t have to be present to win!

And if you’re looking for the gift that keeps on giving, get yourself or your loved one a library card! Those little pieces of plastic give you access to over 10,000,000 items at over 500 libraries across Southern Illinois. From DVDs and CDs, to books and audio books, your library card will keep you entertained. If you decide not to get one, the Library has plenty to offer, like free WIFI, computers to use, events, and programs. You can also stop by to make copies or fax! Don’t overlook one of the best resources Millstadt has to offer!
