Growing Resource Sharing in IHLS Grant Announcement

The secret we’ve been keeping is now public knowledge, and we can tell you what it is! IHLS staff have been working on a grant—commonly known as the Dream Grant among SHARE staff—for the last couple of months. We were quite pleased to be able to announce at last night’s IHLS board meeting that we are about to receive $996,242.00 in grant funds from Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and the Illinois State Library, for the purpose of Growing Resource Sharing in IHLS through Growing SHARE Membership.
