Help Your Local Library

Our local libraries are in trouble and today is the day you can help.

In response to dramatic cutbacks in state funding and unconscionable delays in delivering legislatively approved funding, vital library services are threatened.

“You’ll be as distressed as I am to learn of the impending crisis related to services provided by our local public libraries,” writes Cinda Axley, Wilmette’s Library Board President.

Library supporters want you to help send a torrent of e-mails to Comptroller Dan Hynes and Governor Pat Quinn. This has worked for library funding issues in other states, and it can work here, too.

You’ll be able to make the campaign viral! You’ll be able to ask your friends, colleagues, and coworkers to participate via e-mail. You’ll find an easy-to-use form on the front page, enabling you to e-mail both the governor and comptroller.
