SPRINGFIELD - Secretary of State Jesse White has announced more than $15 million in funding to libraries statewide through Illinois Public Library Per Capita Grants.

Per Capita grants help fund library expenses such as materials, personnel, equipment, electronic access, telecommunications and technology.
