The Secretary of State/Illinois State Library supports the Illinois library community’s efforts to develop collections that encourage formal and independent reading; therefore, eligible public libraries and school districts are invited to apply for a Back to Books grant. This competitive grant offering pairs collection development with programming, an activity or service to support reading, learning or using the new books.
