COVID Testing


Holiday testing availability is limited, due to lab schedules.

We will not be issuing tests from December 23 – 26.

The lab is also closed December 30 – January 2.

BEFORE you pick up your test kit, make sure to register. If you skip this step your test will not be valid, and you will not receive any results.

AFTER you have completed the registration, please call (217)498-8454 and someone will place a test on a cart near the front door. When they have cleared the area, you may come get the test, swab in your car, and return it to the collection box in the foyer. Please do not enter the library.

Rochester Library is partnering with The Association for Rural & Small Libraries and Color Health, Inc. to provide free testing for symptomatic, exposed, high-risk and pregnant individuals.
