Public Library

The Chenoa Public Library in Chenoa, Illinois was made possible by a gift from members of a former Congregational Church. This group being of such small numbers, was unable to maintain a church. In 1912 the church building and grounds were offered to the City of Chenoa to be used as a public library.
