Public and school libraries across Illinois, according to Shelbyville Public Library Director Monica Cameron, were recently made aware of some grants that they would be available for them to apply for.
There are grants available for PPE, books, and to help libraries expand internet service, according to Cameron.
The COVID-19 requirements for libraries are rather complicated, according to Cameron.
The COVID-19 virus can live on books for upto 6 days according to Cameron and so the Shelbyville Public Library isn’t currently charging fines since books are being quarantined once they’re returned.
Monica Cameron was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
