Save Illinois Libraries

Take five minutes of your time today, January 20, 2010 and go to An easy-to-use form is available on the front page. Put in your information and use it to send emails to Comptroller Hynes and Governor Quinn asking them to release the money for library systems.
No money has been received this fiscal year, beginning July 1, 2009, which leaves the library systems unfunded. Money was allocated by the General Assembly, but payments have not been released.

Our goal is 3,000+ e-mails each to Comptroller Hynes and Governor Quinn. This has worked for library funding issues in other states, and it can work here, too.
Once you’ve sent your messages, go viral! You'll be able to ask your friends, colleagues, and co-workers to participate via email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or MySpace, all with one simple click. Many libraries are urging their communities to become involved and email the Governor and Comptroller as well. They too can involve their family and friends. Spread the word.
