Your Voice Needs To Be Heard

Illinois has now entered into an unprecedented 6 months without a state budget and it doesn’t seem like legislators are making much progress. Very soon, many of our members will be forced to make hard decisions about collections, programming, and staffing in light of the budget impasse. Services that Illinois patrons depend on are in jeopardy and Illinois Heartland Library System is calling you to action!
