Library Annual Reports to the City

Library ShelvesAfter the jump are the last three fiscal years’ worth of DeKalb Public Library’s annual reports.

DKPL is obligated to provide a report to the City of DeKalb within a month of the end of each fiscal year, although according to an official with the Illinois State Library it is not actually statutorily obligated to have the report received and filed by the City.

The same official was able to confirm for me that DKPL has indeed filed a copy of its latest report with ISL, which reassures me somewhat that it was not manufactured last week in response to my FOIA request.

What would be even better is if the City of DeKalb would change its policy to receive and file the reports. This would provide some evidence of Council oversight with less bother for Clerk and city staff when it comes to retrieval.
