OSF Saint Francis Library & Resource Center

The OSF Saint Francis Library & Resource Center serves all OSF HealthCare Mission Partners across the Ministry. We also operate the Caterpillar Family Resource Center, a consumer health information library in Children's Hospital of Illinois.

Our library subscribes to numerous medical, nursing and business databases and our collection boasts access to over 5,000 books, DVD's, and scholarly journals. We offer desktop computers with Internet access and Microsoft Office products as well as laptops for checkout. Printers and a copier are also available to visitors.

The library is located on the second floor of the North Building on the OSF Saint Francis campus in Peoria, Illinois and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
