Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Lena State Bank has been monitoring the recent situation in regards to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and, like you, are taking the necessary precautions to keep our staff, customers and community safe. With that safety in mind, we have decided to close our lobby to the general public beginning at noon on Tuesday, March 17th.  We will review the situation on a daily basis and update you as needed.  Our drive-up window will still be open normal business hours and fully functioning. Extra services may be available.

We understand many of our loyal customers are in need of financial advice during this time, and we are committed to meeting your needs. If you need to meet with one of our bankers, we will schedule visitors by appointment only. Please contact us at 815-369-4901 to set up an appointment if needed.
