We, the board of the Foundation for the Brookfield Library, want to thank all community members for their support in making the new library a reality. This community will now add a larger library with greater capacity for educational, cultural and informational programming to the great schools, recreational activities and transportation systems available in our community. 

Some communities do this by voting to raise taxes with a bond referendum. We came close in 2016, but were not able to pass the bond referendum to use this method of funding. 

However, that does not mean the Brookfield community did not understand the asset an expanded library would provide. Another way to fund a library is with donations from individuals, families, organizations, local businesses and national corporations with matching funds available as well as solid support from a source for loans. This mechanism does not raise taxes for property owners but leverages funding from many sources.

We are proud to thank all who have championed our endeavor and believed in our community.

Thank you for your support.

Guy

We would like to congratulate Guy “Guido” Belmonte on his retirement as North Riverside village administrator. Since 2001, Guy has worked with good mayors and trustees for the good of the village.

Together they have brought many businesses to North Riverside: Miller’s Ale House, CVS, Red Robin, Binny’s and Chick-fil-A. He saw the expansion of Best Buy and brought us Costco.

Above all he did his best for all the residents of North Riverside. Thank you.
