Governor announces $50,000 to the Calumet Park Library
Funds to be used for roof construction and repair

CHICAGO - Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today awarded $50,000 to the Calumet Park Library for roof construction and repair.
 
“Libraries are a place of education, exploration and knowledge and should be kept in the best condition to be used by its residents, free of health and safety concerns,” said Governor Blagojevich.
 
The Calumet Park Library is a public facility. Due to water leaks from the roof, persons utilizing the library were exposed to a variety of public health and safety concerns. Grant funds will be used to repair the roof, repair damaged interior due to water damage, replace the carpeting, remodel bathrooms, pain the interior of the building, install new floor tiles and replace the furnace in the administrative office..
 
The completion of this project will allow residents and workers to enjoy the services of the library in a comfortable surrounding without raising health concerns. The library will also be able to expand its services since it no longer will have to be concerned about damage to materials and equipment. Approximately 8,516 people benefit from this project.
 
“On behalf of the citizens of Calumet Park we would like to thank the Governor for granting these funds for the improvements to our city library,” said Representative David Miller who initiated the grant.
