State Representative Tom Morrison (R-Palatine) announced today that $141,353 in state-sponsored per capita grant money has been approved for libraries located in the 54th Legislative House District.
The Public Library Per Capita Grants Program was established to assist public libraries to improve and increase library services within their service areas. Grant amounts of up to $1.25 per person served are available, on an annual basis, to all Illinois local public libraries through an application process.
“Libraries are often a focal point of a community,” said Morrison. “I am pleased to know that a portion of this year’s per capita library grant funds will be channeled toward libraries here in the 54th District.”
Libraries within the 54th Legislative House District that will receive funds include:
- Palatine Public Library District for $111,228.75
- Rolling Meadows Library for $30,123.75
Per Capita Grant funding allows resources for expenses such as materials, personnel, equipment, electronic access, telecommunications and technology.
