BRIDGEVIEW – Several local libraries are set to receive over $196,000 in grant funding, State Senator Steve Landek (D-Bridgeview) announced today.

“Libraries are more than just buildings where you can borrow books,” Landek said. “They provide crucial services to residents of all ages, and they need funding.”

The money comes as part of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Public Library Per Capita and Equalization Aid Grants Program, which was established to ensure that public libraries with low tax bases receive a minimum level of funding for library services. The libraries that will receive grants are:

  • The Bridgeview Public Library, which will receive $24,257.85;
  • The Brookfield Public Library, which will receive $27,992.55;
  • The Cicero Public Library, which will receive $123,739.23; and
  • The Justice Public Library District, which will receive $20,217.83.

“I’m excited to see what kinds of improvements these libraries can provide for their patrons thanks to this new funding,” Landek said.

In total, $18.1 million will be awarded to 638 public libraries across the state. For more information on the grants, visit the secretary of state’s website.
