sunshine-award

Libraries are all about information, and we are proud to announce that we became the first library in Illinois to receive The Sunshine Award. It’s given to organizations that score 80 out of 100 points for making their governance and spending completely available to the public. You can see the checklist on the Illinois Policy Institute’s site. The library staff and Board are committed to making our work as transparent as possible, following the Illinois Open Meetings Act, so that the public can view the workings of the Board and their decision-making process.

Our information is available on every page of our website in the footer under Open Books Project. Want to see when the Board is meeting? It’s there. Want to see the library’s budget? It’s there, too. So is a goldmine of other facts and figures. Everyone is welcome to come take a look!
