Article I - Establishment

The Addison Public Library is established and conducted as a village library in accordance with the Local Library Act, which is codified in 75 ILCS, and the Open Meetings Act.  The Library is established for the use and benefit of its eligible users, exercising the powers and authority and assuming the responsibilities delegated to it under the said statute.  The Library is financed primarily by property taxes levied by the Village of Addison and collected by DuPage County on taxable property within the Village, pursuant to statutes.  Unless indicated to the contrary, where reference is made to state statutes, these bylaws merely repeat the requirements of the statute for reference, and it is the intent of this Board that any future amendments to state statutes are incorporated herein by present reference to such statutes.  All statutory references are to 75 ILCS unless indicated to the contrary.
