Impoverished suburb has a library district, but no library

“Ford Heights has a library district that collects about $20,000 a year from taxpayers who live in one of the poorest communities in the state.

But Ford Heights has no library. The district was forced to close its free-standing library about 20 years ago when it couldn’t come up with the money to maintain the building, and it was eventually razed. A state-of-the-art library in neighboring Glenwood then offered services for a while.” (via Chicago Tribune)
