Library Grants Approved for Three Libraries Located in Representative Peter Breen’s House District

State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) announced today that $124,180 in state-sponsored per capita grant money has been approved for libraries located in the 48th 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.

“Initiatives that improve our local public libraries are vitally important,” said Breen. “Libraries are often a focal point of a community and I am pleased to know that a portion of this year’s per capita library grant allocation will be put to good use right here in the 48th District.”

Libraries within the 48th Legislative House District that will receive funds include:
  • Glen Ellyn Public Library for $34,312.50 
  • Lisle Library District for $35,630.00 
  • Helen M. Plum Memorial Public Library District for $54,237.50 
Per Capita Grant funding allows resources for expenses such as materials, personnel, equipment, electronic access, telecommunications and technology.
