December 17, 2021



On December 2, 2021 the U.S. House and Senate approved a Continuing Resolution to extend the deadline for ratification of the 2022 Federal Budget.  The President signed it on December 3rd. The 2022 Federal budget includes the Appropriations Bill which the Addison Township Library’s “Community Funded Project” is a part of.  The new deadline to approve the budget is February 18, 2022.


Previously, the budget was scheduled to be approved by the end of December 2021. 


Here is a link to the complete list of all “Community Funded Projects” in the Bill.  


It’s an incredible honor to have had our project chosen for this funding. We remain hopeful that our project, along with all of the other Community Funded projects remain in the Appropriations bill. Funding in full or in part helps us reach our goal to build the first community owned library facility in the history of Addison Township, thus powering our potential to improve literacy, education and technology for the whole community.
