Transparency at the Library
We are committed to the ideal of transparency, and we are happy to work within the structures set up by various transparency laws to help our patrons find out what they need to know. If you cannot find the information you seek on our About Us pages, this page might help you find out more about the library.
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
Send your request (using this form) by email, letter, or fax to the FOIA officer listed below. The officer will respond to your request within five business days. (Keep in mind the library is closed on Sundays from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day and on a handful of holidays throughout the year.) Requests may also be delievered by hand to an employee of the library who is working at the library at that time.
Printing copies of these requests is affordable. The first 50 pages of black ink on letter or legal paper are free; after that, each page is $.15. Colored copies and copies on different types of paper will cost you whatever it costs the library to print them. Electronic copies will be free after the price of whatever medium on which they are saved (USB drive, CD, etc.).
The library's FOIA officer is it's director, Mary Medjo Me Zengue. She will glady comply with any FOIA requests.

The Addison Public Library Board of Trustees approved a budget of $4,272,134 for FY 2013-2014 on April 16, 2013.
On August 26, 2011, Gov. Pat Quinn signed Senate Bill 1831 (Public Act 97-0609). This law makes several changes to the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) statute and amends the Open Meetings Act. Effective January 1, 2012, within six days of approving its budget, an IMRF employer must post the total compensation package for each employee receiving a total compensation package that exceeds $75,000 a year.
At least six days before an IMRF employer approves an employee’s total compensation package that will equal or exceed $150,000 a year, the employer must post the total compensation package for that employee.
For this statute, “total compensation package” is defined as salary, employer-paid health insurance premiums, housing allowance, vehicle allowance, clothing allowance, bonuses, loans, vacation days which will be earned in that year and sick days which will be earned in that year.
