Robinson library districts gets $19,000 in per-capita funding
The Robinson Public Library District has received more than $19,000 from the state to purchase new items.

Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White said the $19,296.25 per capita grant to the local library was part of grants totaling $15.4 million to 631 public libraries serving nearly 12 million patrons.

"I am proud of the outstanding service Illinois' public libraries provide to our communities," White said. "Our libraries are the best and most reliable information resource available to citizens and I am pleased to be able to provide these grants each year."

Some of the valuable services public libraries provide with these grants include large-print material, books, magazines, newspapers, CDs and DVDs, audiobooks and ebooks.

The grant funds can also be used to purchase new computers, iPads and printers, expanded access to online resources, adult programming and newsletters, postcards and other promotional materials.

Per capita grant funding is authorized under Illinois library law for public libraries, which allows resources for expenses such as materials, personnel, equipment, electronic access, telecommunications and technology.
