An initiative to help libraries work with members of the military in their communities.

  • Today’s military—both veteran and active duty—represents a significant segment of our communities. People with unique experiences and skills in a position to contribute as friends, neighbors, employers and employees, parents, teachers, and colleagues.
  • You don’t have to look very far in any community to find someone who is “military connected”—if they haven’t served themselves, they more than likely have a friend or relative who has.
  • Explore information and resources designed to help libraries in Illinois connect to this key constituency and build program models that can be shared, drawing on existing programs and resources.
