State $$$ headed to Tiskilwa Library
TISKILWA – A state grant will allow the Tiskilwa Public Library to build an addition to the building.
Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White recently informed Tiskilwa Public Library officials that the library is entitled to receive a Fiscal Year 2013 Illinois Public Construction Grant. White said the grant’s maximum award is $504,241.40.
“We’re excited because the grant will make it possible for us to build an addition to the library and make it accessible for the whole community,” said Nancy Johnston, secretary of the library board. “The plan also includes preserving and renovating the current building as a community center.”
The grant requires the library to match the grant with an additional $465,453.60. The library will meet the grant from combination of savings, donations and a loan from a local bank.
Tiskilwa area residents are invited to review the building plans and hear about the project at an open house to be held at the library at 6:30 p.m. May 21.
“Donations from Friends of the Library to the building fund total $34,500 to date, an important part of making this project possible,” said Rich Foss, board president. “We are also looking for additional donations.
