Library Grants Approved for Seven Libraries Located in Representative Chad Hays’ House District

State Representative Chad Hays (R-Catlin) announced today that $91,294 in state-sponsored per capita grant money has been approved for libraries located in the 104th 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.

“Investing in our local public libraries is vitally important,” said Hays. “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 104th District.”

Libraries within the 104th Legislative House District that will receive funds include:
