HIGHWOOD – Patrons of the Deerfield Public Library will soon see an increase of books, videos and CDs thanks to a $26,000 state grant, State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Lake Forest) announced Thursday.

“During a time of increased reliance on technology for work, school and everyday life, libraries have stepped up to meet the challenge while still continuing to provide vital resources for enrichment, education, and much needed entertainment in our communities,” Morrison said.

The $26,881 received by Deerfield Public Library is part of $18.1 million in grants awarded to 638 public libraries across the state. For more than 40 years, the Illinois Public Library Per Capita and Equalization Aid Grants Program has helped public libraries ensure a minimum level of funding for their services.

Deerfield Public Library will use the grant from the Illinois Secretary of State’s office to supplement its physical and digital collections, including books, videos, and CDs.

"We greatly appreciate the continued support of State Librarian Jesse White and the Illinois Legislature through the annual Per Capita and Equalization Grant awards,” said Deerfield Public Library Director Amy Falasz-Peterson. “These funds are essential for the provision of the dynamic, diverse, and in-demand library collections our community depends on for life-long learning."

For more information on the grants, people can visit the Secretary of State’s website.
