Seed Library

About the LME Seed Library      

The Seed Library is a collection of open-pollinated and heirloom seeds that you can borrow to plant and grow at home. By saving seeds as a community, we help to:

  • encourage patrons to sustainably grow and harvest their own food
  • support and build community among fellow gardeners
  • promote new or reluctant gardeners to try their hand at growing
  • preserve open-pollinated or heirloom seeds
  • encourage patrons to grow and save seeds

The Seed Library is open during the growing season, usually March-October.


How to Use the Seed Library

Using the Seed Library is easy!

  1. Pick out the seeds you would like to plant from our Seed Library display by the circulation desk.

    • Please do not take all the same variety of seeds—leave some for others to enjoy!
  2. Take your seeds home and plant them.
  3. If you are able, consider saving some seeds from your mature plants and donating them back to the seed library.

How do you know when to plant seeds?

The Illinois Extension Office has lots of resources at: 

How do I return seeds?

In order to continue and grow our seed library from year to year, we ask that you try to harvest and return seeds from your crop. Be sure to dry them, and store them in a cool, dry place until you can return them to the Library. We suggest that you save the packet from your borrowed seeds so that you have all the required information available when you return your seeds. Growing, harvesting, saving, and donating seeds cultivates a culture of sharing throughout our community.

What if I want to donate seeds from outside the Seed Library?

Seed donations are welcome all year round. You can donate seeds you saved yourself or any purchased seeds you don’t need. Keep in mind that the LME Library only accepts open-pollinated or heirloom seeds. Thank you for supporting the LME Seed Library!

Test Proctoring Policy

Adopted: 4/9/2015 Reviewed: 2/13/2020, 1/19/2022


General Proctoring Policy

As part of our support for life-long learning, the Lillie M. Evans Library District provides free proctoring of written or online exams during regular library hours. Tests requiring access to a non-standard Internet port or requiring the installation of software on the library’s computers cannot be proctored at the library.

  • All proctoring must be pre-arranged. The Director or InterLibrary Loan staff will serve as the contact person for all exams and sign off on any proctor or exam forms. The library is not responsible for exams sent without prior arrangements. The proctor will be a staff member on duty at the time of the exam. 
  • The student is responsible to provide the proctor approval forms or requests for proctor information. The student is responsible to arrange for the delivery of the exam or proctor password to the library.  Exams and/or passwords may be mailed, faxed or emailed to test proctor. Passwords must be received before a proctored exam can be scheduled.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to contact the library and make an appointment to have a test proctored at a mutually convenient date and time.
  • The library will provide space to take the exam and a public access computer for online exams.  The library cannot guarantee a quiet environment or constant supervision of the student.
  • Completed exams are returned directly to the testing institution by fax or USPS mail. The student should provide a stamped, addressed envelope for returning the exam if one is not provided by the institution. If there is a time restraint, the student may bring in a pre-paid USPS Priority Mail envelope or a pre-paid USPS Flat Rate Express Mail envelope.  The library is unable to honor requests requiring special trips to the post office, FedEx or UPS.
  • The library is not responsible for any exam deadlines.
  • Librarians will not grade examinations.
  • Unless other arrangements have been made, untaken exams will be held a maximum of one month.
  • The library cannot guarantee that technical problems will not occur during online exams.



The student must contact the Director or InterLibrary Loan staff to request proctoring services before having an examination sent by the testing institution. The library requires the student’s name, phone number, email address, name of the course and testing institution.

  • The student will provide any forms for proctor information required by the test institution and will have the test or password sent to the library contact.
  • The library will contact the student when the examination or password is received.  An appointment to take the exam will then be scheduled.
  • The student should come prepared with pens, pencils, erasers, scratch paper, calculators or any other supplies required for the exam.  The student will be asked to show a photo ID for verification.
  • The student will relinquish any cell phones, textbooks, laptops, blackberries, etc. while testing unless use is required for the exam. These items will be held at the desk.
  • Online tests will be completed on a public computer. Completed paper exams will be faxed, emailed and/or mailed to the testing institution as requested by the institution. The library will not copy the completed exams. The exam will normally be mailed the following day.  The library is not responsible for exams once they leave the building.

Song List:
Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus
What a Friend We Have in Jesus
My Savior’s Love
Trust and Obey
The Solid Rock
Our God, He is Alive
Behold Our God
Be Thou My Vision
Come, Thou Fount, Come Thou King
In Christ Alone
Wonderful, Merciful Savior
Turn Your Eyes
10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)
Here is Love
All Glory Be to Christ




Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus

'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, "Thus saith the Lord!"


Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I've proved Him o'er and o'er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.


I'm so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end. 





What a Friend We Have in Jesus

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer

Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer 

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer 

Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge,/
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.




My Savior’s Love

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene
And wonder how He could love me
A sinner, condemned, unclean


How marvelous, how wonderful
And my song shall ever be
How marvelous, how wonderful

is my Savior's love for me

For me it was in the garden
He prayed, “Not my will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.


He took my sins and my sorrows
And He made them His very own
He bore the burden to Calvary
Then suffered and died alone


When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see
'Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.





Trust and Obey

When we walk with the Lord in the light of His Word
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will, He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey


Trust and obey, for there's no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey

Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the skies
But His smile quickly drives it away
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear
Can abide while we trust and obey


Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay,
Not a grief nor a loss, not a frown nor a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.


Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His feet
Or we'll walk by His side in the way
What He says we will do, where He sends we will go
Never fear, only trust and obey





The Solid Rock

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.


On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.


When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.





Our God, He is Alive

There is, beyond the azure blue;
A God, concealed from human sight,
He tinted skies with heavenly hue
And framed the worlds with His great might.


There is a God, He is alive,
In Him we live and we survive;
From dust our God created man,
He is our God, the great I AM.

Secure, is life from mortal mind,
God holds the germ within His hand,
ho’ men may search, they cannot find,
For God alone does understand.


Our God, whose Son upon a tree,
A life was willing there to give,
That He from sin might set men free,
And evermore with Him could live.<






Behold Our God

Who has held the oceans in his hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice
All creation rises to rejoice


Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare
Come, let us adore him

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach, the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?


Who has felt the nails upon his hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man?
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign.



Men: You will reign forever

Women: Let Your glory fill the earth




Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one. 

Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise
Thou mine inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art 

High King of heaven, my victory won
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O ruler of all




Come, Thou Fount, Come Thou King

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I'm fixed up, on it - mount of Thy redeeming love.

I was lost in utter darkness 'til You came and rescued me
I was bound by all my sin when Your love came and set me free
Now my soul can sing a new song, now my heart has found a home
Now Your grace is always with me- and I'll never be alone.


Come, Thou Fount, come, Thou King; Come, Thou precious Prince of Peace
Hear Your bride, to You we sing, come, Thou Fount of our blessing.

O, to grace, how great a debtor daily I'm constrained to be
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, Lord, take and seal it - seal it for Thy courts above 





In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My comforter, my all in all
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand




Wonderful, Merciful Savior

Wonderful, merciful Savior
Precious Redeemer and Friend
Who would have thought that a Lamb
Could rescue the souls of men
Oh, You rescue the souls of men

Counselor, Comforter, Keeper
Spirit we long to embrace
You offer hope when our hearts have
Hopelessly lost our way
Oh, we've hopelessly lost the way


You are the One that we praise
You are the One we adore
You give the healing and grace
Our hearts always hunger for
Oh, our hearts always hunger for

Almighty, infinite Father
Faithfully loving Your own
Here in our weakness You find us
Falling before Your throne
Oh, we're falling before Your throne





Turn Your Eyes

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in His wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of His glory and grace

Turn your eyes to the hillside
Where justice and mercy embraced
There the Son of God gave His life for us
And our measureless debt was erased 


Jesus, to You we lift our eyes
Jesus, our glory and our prize
We adore You, behold You, our Savior ever true
Oh Jesus, we turn our eyes to You. 

Turn your eyes to the morning
And see Christ the Lion awake
What a glorious dawn, fear of death is gone
For we carry His life in our veins 


Turn your eyes to the heavens
Our King will return for His own
Every knee will bow, every tongue will shout,
‘All glory to Jesus alone!’





10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
O my soul, worship His holy Name.
Sing like never before, O my soul.
I’ll worship Your holy Name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning;
It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass and whatever lies before me,
Let me be singing when the evening comes.


You’re rich in love and You’re slow to anger,
Your Name is great and Your heart is kind;
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing,
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.


And on that day when my strength is failing,
The end draws near and my time has come;
Still my soul sings Your praise unending,
Ten thousand years and then forevermore.


 Worship Your holy name,

Lord, I’ll worship Your holy name.




Here is Love

Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Loving-kindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,

Throughout heav’n’s eternal days.

On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above,
And heav’n’s peace and perfect justice

Kissed a guilty world in love.

Let me, all Thy love accepting,
Love Thee, ever all my days;
Let me seek Thy kingdom only,
And my life be to Thy praise;
Thou alone shalt be my glory,
Nothing in the world I see;
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me,
Thou Thyself hast set me free.




All Glory Be to Christ

Should nothing of our efforts stand, No legacy survive,
Unless the Lord does raise the house, In vain its builders strive.
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain, Tell me, what is your life?
A mist, it vanishes at dawn, All glory be to Christ.


All glory be to Christ our King,
All glory be to Christ.
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing,
All glory be to Christ.

His will be done, His kingdom come, On earth as is above.
Who is Himself our daily bread, Praise Him the Lord of love.
Let living waters satisfy the thirsty without price.
Come eat of Him, our Living Bread, all glory be to Christ.


 When on the day, the great I Am, the faithful and the true,
The Lamb who was for sinner’s slain, Is making all things new.
Behold our God shall live with us, And be our steadfast Light,
And we shall e’er his people be, All glory be to Christ.





Central Illinois Monarch Waystations - CI Monarch Jaunt

In July 2023, Katelynn from Green View Companies in Dunlap, IL began organizing the Central Illinois Monarch Jaunt. This is an initiative created and funded by Green View Companies in collaboration with Monarch Watch, the Monarch Waystation Program, Monarch Joint Venture, and other central Illinois organizations. Green View is a family-owned plant nursery, garden center, and landscaping company that has served the central IL community since the 1950s. Since they were already a Monarch Waystation, they wanted to promote awareness of other waystations in the area. From this, a "Central Illinois Monarch Jaunt" brochure was created to allow people to see the different waystations in our community. 


The idea is simple. We want everyone to be able to visit the waystations and see the impact that they are making in conserving the monarch population. This is a self-guided initiative, with no set date or time. Visitors can pick up a map from any participating location which includes a list of all other participating locations as well as pertinent information about monarchs and their habitats. Monarch Waystations are a valuable educational experience and our intention is to educate the public on the value of waystations and encourage others to add their own waystations.

Interested in the brochure? It is available online at: CI Monarch Jaunt brochure.pdf (link will be active when brochure approved)

An online map of the central Illinois monarch waystations is linked here to make it easier to locate the waystations.

Song List:
Joy to the World
Away in a Manger
Oh Come, All Ye Faithful
It Came upon The Midnight Clear
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Silent Night
We Wish You A Merry Christmas



Jov to the World

Joy to the world! The Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n and nature sing,
And heav'n, and heav'n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth; the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.




Away In A Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay.
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes,
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes,
I love Thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from the sky,
And stay by my cradle, till morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask thee to stay,
Close by me forever, and love me, I pray;
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,
And take us to heaven, To live with Thee there.



 O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;

O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

Praise choirs of angels, praise in exultation,
O bring, all ye bright hosts of heav'n above;
Glory to God, all glory in the highest;





 It Came upon The Midnight Clear

It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth to touch their harps of gold:
Peace on the earth, good will to men, From heav'n's all gracious King.
The world in solemn stillness lay, to hear the angels sing.

Still through the cloven skies they come, With peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heav'nly music floats O'er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains They bend on hoi/ ring wing.
And ever o'er its Babel sounds, The blessed angels sing.



O Little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight.

For Christ is born of Mary, And gathered all above.
While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wand'ring love.
O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King, And peace to men on earth.



Silent Night

Silent night, holy night, All is calm, all is bright

Round yon virgin mother and child. Holy infant so tender and mild,

Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace.


Silent night, holy night. Shepherds quake at the sight,

Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing alleluia.

Christ, the Savior is born! Christ, the Savior is born!


Silent night, holy night, Son of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace,

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth, Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.




We Wish You A Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas! We wish you a Merry Christmas!

We wish you a Merry Christmas And a Happy New Year!

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Lillie M. Evans Library District has two meeting rooms.  Details about the size and capacity of each room are below. The primary purpose of the meeting rooms is to support library functions, meetings, and programs. The meeting rooms may, on occasion, be made available for use by members of the public.  Library sponsored programs receive first priority, after which other requests will be considered in the order in which they are received. The Library District reserves the right to revise any meeting arrangements scheduled if necessary and to preempt an established reservation upon reasonable notification. Organizations not affiliated with the Lillie M. Evans Library District may use the meeting room only when all of the following conditions are met:

  1. Requests for meeting room use must be made to the library staff in advance. An application for use may be filed up to 6 months in advance.

  3. The meeting cannot be expected to disrupt the ability of the library to conduct its business in a normal and orderly manner.
  4. The meeting is open to the public.
  5. When reserving the meeting room for a non-library event, the reservation must be made by an adult resident of the library district. Reservations made for parties (birthdays, anniversaries, showers, etc.) must pay a $15 non-refundable fee at time of reservation and all conditions must be followed.
  6. The resident of the library district making the reservation assumes responsibility for security and damages to library property. A clean-up fee may be imposed on any group violating this requirement.
  7. The organization will be responsible for any advance preparation and room set-up and for leaving the facilities in the same order they were before the meeting.
  8. Alcohol, tobacco/vaping products, and controlled substances are prohibited. Due to insurance concerns, no inflatables (for example: bouncy houses) are allowed in meeting room spaces.
  9. Meetings may be held before or after regularly scheduled Library hours only when prior arrangement has been made and approval has been given.
  10. Library District audiovisual equipment may be available for use with proper advance request. Library staff is not available to operate equipment.
  11. In the event of a Library building emergency or weather-related emergency, meetings will be cancelled.
