Meeting agendas

On March 5, 2021, Governor Pritzker issued the twelfth Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation for all counties in the State of Illinois. In consideration of this and due to the COVID-19 health pandemic, Library Director Richard Kong has determined that a fully accessible in-person meeting on April 14, 2021 is not practical or prudent. In accordance with Public Act 101-640, this meeting will thus be held without the physical presence of a quorum of trustees at the regular meeting location. The regular meeting location is the Board Room on the third floor of Skokie Public Library, 5215 Oakton St. Skokie, IL 60076. Additionally, in consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic and present health protocols, including limitations on physical gatherings, it is not feasible to have a trustee, chief administrative officer or chief legal counsel physically present at this meeting, or to allow members of the public to attend the meeting in-person. Members of the public may provide public comment and access all open portions of the meeting via the Zoom link and accompanying information in the posted agenda, and on this webpage.
