City Council Passes 2012 Budget

Mayor Emanuel’s 2012 budget was passed unanimously by the City Council on Wed., Nov.16th. While not fully funding libraries, this revised budget did include the restoration of $3.3M to the Chicago Public Library budget. That restoration was due in no small part to the calls, emails, and letters that many of you made to our elected officials. Its not immediately clear how the new budget will directly impact local branches but as that information is shared, we will pass it on to you. Meanwhile, let’s continue to support our local branch, Blackstone, to make it a strong, vibrant part of the cultural life of our community.
