Remodeling of the Carriage House’s main floor for use as the new library began in 1990. Heading the renovation was Leslie H. Kenyon of Peoria. When the doors were opened to the public in 1991, it offered 12,000 books to its patrons.

That same year, the Library Board petitioned to have the Dwight Public Library convert to a Library District, which would give it a larger territory and, thus, a larger tax base. The initiative was successful, and the Prairie Creek Public Library District was created. The increased tax base allows the library to offer its patrons improved materials and services.
