An Investment in Your Library is an Investment in Your Community!
The Library Board of Trustees recently launched a sponsorship campaign to help augment library finances and ensure that our Library continues to be one of the leading libraries in our area. Lemont Library is funded primarily by local property taxes and has one of the lowest budgets for operating expenses of any Chicago-area library. Your assistance will ensure that the library continues to be the premier community destination and a resource for all Lemont residents for years to come. It will afford us the ability to expand free programs and classes in literacy, art, music and science for children and teens, continue educational and entertaining programs and technology classes for adults, invest in ongoing technology updates, and provide enhancements to the Library campus. The Library continues to adapt and grow to meet the changing expectations of our community. Library usage statistics demonstrate that the public library continues to be a vital, highly utilized, community resource, even in the age of digital resources. In FY 2015, library card holders increased by 6.7%; There were more than 10,000 visits to the library per month, attendance at free library programs and classes increased by 16%, and the number of materials (both print and digital) increased by almost 7.0%.
A select number of sponsorships are available for a five year period. A limited number of spaces, including the Event Space, Learning Center, Collaboration Studios and Study Rooms, can be named for a sponsor. Each sponsorship includes appropriate recognition with a plaque and/or other signage, acknowledgement in digital and print media, access to special events and more.
