Jesse White visits Selby Township Library for grant presentation

Posted by wlpo on March 18, 2013

The public library in DePue is small but it gives people a place to use the internet, find books, and even learn a new language.  The old building has been damaged by water over the years.  Selby Township Library officials plan on making the repairs using a $94,000 state grant. 

          Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White visited the library Monday morning to present a ceremonial check.  White says libraries more than ever play an important role in the community especially for people who are using the library for their job search.

White also told the students from DePue Elementary School in the audience they should go to school everyday and on time.

          The library district is coming up with at least $30,000 to match the grant.  The building will be getting major exterior work, new windows and gutters, repairs to any structural damage.
