“Libraries are a vital community resource by providing residents with a safe, quiet space to read and learn,” Glowiak Hilton said. “This grant ensures libraries are equipped to serve students and individuals of all ages, especially individuals at higher risk of contracting COVID-19 or have health concerns during the pandemic.”

The initiative is aimed to respond directly to difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The grant provides funding for libraries to modify services, transform spaces and develop resources for their local recovering workforce and to ensure all operations can be provided safely and effectively as the pandemic continues.

The following libraries in the district Sen. Glowiak Hilton represents will receive funds:

  • Benedictine University, Lisle: $9,775
  • Butler School District, Oak Brook: $5,902
  • Lombard Elementary School District 44: $128,476
  • Oak Brook Public Library: $9,011
  • Westmont Unit School: $19,840

Approximately $173,004 in funding was granted to libraries in the 24th Senate District. For a full list of libraries receiving a grant, click here.
