Open Books, Open Doors
Recognizing the need to provide library card sign-up assistance to families of elementary school students with economic hardship in unincorporated areas, the Glen Ellyn Public Library has created the Open Books, Open Doors program, which subsidizes eligible families in unincorporated areas of school districts 41 and 89.
The program is available to families of elementary school students with demonstrable economic hardship and adults who have a valid Illinois LINK card. The library has issued over 100 library cards since the creation of the program in 2002. “Open Books, Open Doors” application forms are available at the library’s circulation desk.
