The Library Board of Trustees voted on January 10 to ask voters to approve a $25M referendum that will be on the April 4 consolidated election ballot. The new ballot question asks voters to approve a limiting rate increase that will fund a renovation of the current building, an addition, equipment and furnishings and it will provide funds to operate the expanded facility. Visit the Library’s Future page for full details.

The Library is partnering for the fifth year in a row, with Elgin Recycling, to offer holiday lights recycling! While taking down your holiday decorations, you are bound to come across lights that no longer work; now you can be green and recycle them, earning funds for the Library to offer other green programs and events. Collection continues through February, 28, 2017.
