Save Illinois Libraries Success!
Very good news this morning! So far the count is that over 18,000 emails have been sent statewide. Notice that a partial payment of some of the system funds that we should receive has been posted on the Comptroller’s web site with a date of 1/20/2010. While we have not received the funds yet this is very good news. Apparently some payments are also going to other agencies including schools and colleges/universities.
Special thanks to everyone who sent emails and spread the word to colleagues, family, friends, and library users. This approach definitely works and we are planning future efforts. The Save Illinois Libraries web site still has the email form on it and it may still be used. Additional emails will only help.
