Library cards are available to residents of Monticello Township through fees paid with yearly property taxes. Area untaxed "non-residents" can pay an assessed yearly fee to become Library Patrons.



Allerton Public Library District (APLD) subscribes to two eReading subscriptions, 3M Cloud Library and My Media Mall, and one online magazine subscription, Zinio. All services are available to APLD Patrons with a current Library Card.
