Welcome to the...
Chillicothe is in the process of updating the city's Comprehensive Plan and requests your input!
A Comprehensive Plan is one of the most important tools for effectively managing future growth by providing a vision and clear understanding of the direction the community should go to achieve its desired goals and objectives.
A Comprehensive Plan is not meaningful unless it reflects the needs and desires of all constituents. It is critical that the city gets as many community members as possible involved in this process. Voice your opinion by responding to a brief survey by March 10, 2014.
The survey may be completed online By Clicking Here or in paper format at Chillicothe City Hall, Pearce Community Center or the Chillicothe Public Library District.

Find a book
Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White is joining Governor Pat Quinn and Illinois Superintendent of Education Christopher A. Koch in urging librarians, educators and families to use the free online “Find a Book” search tool to ensure students continue reading while they are out of school this summer. “Find a Book” provides a way for librarians, parents and children to quickly and easily search for books that match a child’s reading level and interests. “Find a Book” also helps locate a local library carrying each book title. “Our Illinois libraries have long promoted year round reading and the `Find a Book’ search tool complements such efforts,’’ said Secretary White. “I encourage parents to read with their children every day to ensure a lifelong love of reading. When children begin reading independently, they are not only making academic gains but opening themselves to new worlds.”
