No new material purchases, or expenditures for programs

Until the budget is settled in Springfield, and the Cook County tax bills are mailed, the library (as an agency dependent on taxes) is essentially out of money.

Even if the bills are approved tomorrow there will be no income collected until the end of November. As a result, all purchases of new material, or expenditures for programs have been halted.

Please let your state legislator know if you are unhappy with this situation.

2 advertised October programs have been cancelled: "Walking from Madrid to Kiev" and "Tour Historical Chicago's Crime Scene."
