Close Evanston's Branch Libraries sign now

Evanston is facing a $9.5 million budget deficit next year.
To close this gap, every city department is facing cuts, including essential services.

In this context of a severe budget crisis, the Evanston City Council initially voted to close the branch libraries.
Days later, the City Council reconsidered and decided to fund the two branch libraries for 6 months.

We strongly believe that given the reality of Evanstons current budget situation, we unfortunately cannot afford to keep the branch libraries open.

We urge the city council to close the branch libraries at the start of the budget year and eliminate any funding allocation not contractually required.
