Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White will visit the Glen Ellyn Public Library (GEPL) to present Library Director Dawn Bussey and the Library Board of Trustees with the Illinois Public Library Construction Act Grant.

The Public Library Construction Act Grant provides state matching funding to support design and new construction, remodeling, renovation or maintenance for libraries in Illinois. The grant has been allocated toward flood repairs and the installation of flood preventative measures.

The presentation will take place on the GEPL’s second floor and is open to the public. It will take place on Monday, January 13, 2014 at 2:00 p.m.

The Public Library Construction Act is Section 15-1 of the FY2010 Budget Implementation (Capital) Act. According to the Office of the Secretary of State, “Created as part of the 2009 state capital construction plan, the legislation creating this grant program, Public Act 096-0037, requires the SOS/ISL to create standards that prioritize grant awards in one of five project categories and provide state grant funding of from 35% to 75% of allowable construction costs based upon the public library’s position on a grant index determined by the assessed value of all property within the library’s boundaries."

Only public libraries that are recognized by the State of Illinois as full members of the Illinois Regional Library Systems can apply for these grants. The Office of the Secretary of State also states, “Public Libraries must also qualify for state per capita grant funding and participate in Inter-system Reciprocal Borrowing.”
