Spotlighting Three More Awards

March 25, 2014

The Appropriations General Services Committee of the Illinois House of Representatives is holding a budget hearing on March 26 and ILA will urge full funding of Illinois State Library Library Grant programs, including area and per capita grants.  The total amount of the 2015 request is $47,950,600.  ILA members and library supporters are encouraged to contact their elected representatives to stress the importance of these grants in making library services available to their constituents.  State grants are particularly important in funding resource sharing and delivery and to leverage both local and federal funding.  Please click here for the full text of ILA's testimony.
